Moomin and the Brigand

Written by Tove Jansson

Moomin and the Brigand Synopsis

Moomin s pushy relations have come to stay, and in the process of getting them out, he unwittingly embarks on a quest for fame and fortune with his sly friend Sniff. But it s much harder to get rich than either of them expects, whether it s through selling rare creatures to the zoo, using a fortune-teller to find treasures, or making modern art. Through a stroke of luck, however, Moomin meets the love of his life, Snorkmaiden, and with her help he finds the self-confidence he needs to get his house back. The iconic first Moomin comic strip by Tove Jansson, Moomin and the Brigands is a thrilling introduction to the vibrant inhabitants of Moominvalley we ve come to know and love.

Moomin and the Brigand Press Reviews

Here is where Jansson's weird but true world begins; where fear, loneliness and insecurity are banished by love and the force of imagination. -Time [Jansson's] work soars with lightness and speed, and her drawings only echo her writing: delicate but precise, observant yet suggestive...Jansson was exceptional, an exuberant explorer of emotional independence and interdependence, a liberating force. -Los Angeles Times Book Review A lost treasure now rediscovered--one of the sweetest, strangest comics strips ever drawn orwritten. A surrealist masterpiece. Honest. -NeilGaiman, author of Sandman, American Godsand Fragile Things Moomin is gorgeous, and isflat out the best Moomin book I've ever seen. Tove Jansson was a natural cartoonist. These strips are clever, gentle, witty, and completely engrossing. -Jeff Smith, cartoonist of Bone
