An interactive lift-the-flap adventure that introduces several curious creatures who live in Moominvalley. Pre-readers can sharpen hand-eye coordination as they join Moomintroll's search for that rascal Little My, who has found a very clever hiding place. Along the way, they will meet Moomintroll's family and many friends. The funny names--from Snufkin to Fillyjonk--beg to be sounded out and repeated again and again.
Based on characters and artwork created by Tove Jansson, whose original Moomin books have been translated from the original Swedish into more than thirty languages.
Recommended for ages 1-3.
Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was born in Helsinki and spent much of her life in Finland. She is the author and illustrator of the beloved Moomin books. Born into an artistic family—her father was a sculptor and her mother was a graphic designer and illustrator—Jansson studied at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and L’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In addition to her Moomin books, she also wrote several novels, drew comic strips and worked as a painter and illustrator. In 1966, she was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her body of work. Jansson had a studio in Helsinki but spent most of her time at her home on a small island called Klovharu.
