Wonderful Mumin




Well, it's pretty much impossible not to like the moomintrolls.
The books, the series, the tvshow, the cups... oh my gosh. I would buy anything with moomin on it, which makes me the perfect customer to fool with a whole bunch of crap ;)

Surprisingly, I haven't read all books. I've read the ones about midsummer, winter and the island many times, but then there are a few books that don't speak to me the same way. Strange actually.
Tove Jansson, the author and artist, was a true poet of life. The way she describes environments, characters and feelings is truly unique. I'm so happy she brought this magical world into our world.

  1. hehe, funny how same thoughts seem to travel through air :)...we were just yesterday, as our babyboy fell asleep, exited about the fact, that in a year or two we definetly have Mumin as a bedtimestory. Both had wide smiles on our face after that descovery :D

  3. My favourite one is Sent November, which funnily hasn't got mumins in it. And I always read it around this time of the year :)

  4. I love the Moomins ~ I have two of those comic books but I have yet to sit down and read them properly. I will make time one day!

  5. I love the moomins as well, and I'm also always so amazed at Tove Jansson's skill. My favourite book, or one of, is the one with the short stories. The one about the dragon in particular. The comics are not available in Canada but this summer at Helsinki Airport I got to read some before getting asked to buy the book ;)
