Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition
Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition | Tove Jansson
17 posts | 3 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
A celebration of Tove Jansson's legacy, one hundred years after her birth Tove Jansson's Moomin stories made her one of the most beloved Scandinavian authors of the twentieth century. Jansson's whimsical tales of Moominvalley resonate with children for their lighthearted spirit, and with adults for their incisive commentary on the banality of everyday life. The year 2014 marks the centenary of her birth, and Jansson is being honored with events in Japan, Scandinavia, England, Germany, Russia, Australia, Italy, Spain, and France. Drawn & Quarterly is joining the festivities by releasing Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition, a slipcased hardcover collection of the complete Tove Jansson-penned Moomin comic strip, replete with all of her most popular storylines and original pencil sketches. It has been more than sixty years since the Moomin comic strip debuted in the London Evening News. By the end of its run in 1975, Moomin was syndicated in more than forty newspapers around the world and hailed for its light-handed, charming stories. The comics were revived in 2005 by Drawn & Quarterly and published to widespread acclaim, sparking a new generation of devoted Moomin fans with international editions around the world. Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition celebrates the classic comics the world adores, and will feature an essay about Tove's work on the Moomin strip.

I never read any Moomin as a kid and right now I regret that. On the other hand, I'm sure that several of the stories would have scared me, I was easily scared as a kid. The Moomin cartoons scared me. On one level these stories are cozy and makes you believe that everything will be all right. Reading these stories as an adult, I also see other important themes like being kind to others, acceptance and integration of strangers. Cont in comments

AnneCecilie And in today's society these themes are more important than ever. In one of the stories, two strangers knock on the Moomin house, and Moomin mother just ask Moomin father to make two beds so the strangers will have somewhere to sleep 4y

The importance if acceptance. The dog in this story likes cats, moomin mom‘s reaction is that the important thing is that one likes somebody

I assume that almost every Litten can relate to this, staying in bed to read instead of getting up at 4 to clean.

If only cleaning was like this. The moomins turns everything into something fun. When they are cleaning they pretend that it‘s earthquake and that the dust is explosive.

This drawing reminds me of an other famous bridge scene, Whinnie the Pooh and Piglet.

Next up. I loved watching the Mommin cartoons growing up. And this summer there is an expedition not that far from me that I want to visit.

And since I want to come prepared I am going to read the stories for the first time.
