Finn Family Moomintroll
Publisher: Puffin Books
Moomintroll is cheerful and chubby and lives in the magical Moominvalley with his mother, Moominmamma, his father, Moominpappa and all of their friends. Throughout the winter the Moomins hibernate, but before they go to sleep they fill their tummies full of pineneedles. In spring they wake up, ready for their fun-filled summer adventures.
This beautifully-written story from Tove Jansson introduces the loveable Moomin family and follows them on a series of remarkable adventures. Both children and adults will be entranced by Jansson's strange but delightful tales.
