The Memoirs of Moominpappa by Tove Jansson was released originally in Swedish in 1950. The book tells a story about Moominpappa’s wild adventures before settling in the peaceful Moominvalley. 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.

“One cold and windy autumn evening many years ago a newspaper parcel was found on the doorstep of the Home for Moomin Foundlings. In that parcel I lay, quite small and shivering with cold.”

So begins Moominpappa’s remarkable Memoirs, written to delight his son Moomintroll and friends. What emerges
is a story about storytelling itself as one fabulous tale follows another, and not just about Moominpappa but Sniff and Snufkin’s fathers too – the rather muddled Muddler and the carefree Joxter. Add to this mix the genius inventor Hodgkins, and a grand finale in which Moominpappa rescues a shipwrecked Moominmamma from the waves, and the fun becomes irresistible.
