Finn Family Moomintroll by Tove Jansson was released originally in Swedish in 1948. The book introduces the reader to the Moomin family and tells a story about mysterious Hobgoblin and his magical hat. So far, the book has been released in over 50 languages. This Special Collectors’ Edition by Sort Of Books has been restored to its original design.
The Moomins, in case you haven’t already met them, are kind, philosophical creatures with velvety fur and smooth round snouts, who live in a beautiful valley in a forest in Finland. They have the most natural way of turning friends into family – Moominmamma simply adds another plank to the table and builds a new bed. Moomins sleep through the winter, when the snow turns their house into a great snowball. But, when spring comes, they wake and clamber down rope ladders hanging from their windows, ready for a bright new adventure.
In Finn Family Moomintroll the discovery of the Hobgoblin’s hat leads to the most extraordinary magic and mayhem. Coupled with the arrival of Thingumy and Bob and their mysterious suitcase, the Moomins have never experienced anything quite like this before.
