Moominpappa at Sea

Written by Tove Jansson

Part of the Moomins Collectors' Editions Series

Moominpappa at Sea Synopsis

Moominpappa yearns to make a fresh start, to find a rocky island and lighthouse where he'll feel alert and important again. And so the Moomins set sail for a new home. Moominpappa's longed-for-island proves as mysterious and wild and he'd hoped. It even has a deserted lighthouse. But how is Moominmamma to grow her flowers and what could have happened to the last keeper of the lighthouse?

Moominpappa at Sea Press Reviews

I love these editions - so beautifully produced, so solid and permanent, just as Tove Jansson deserved -- Philip Pullman Tove Jansson is one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been -- Sir Terry Pratchett [These editions] are simply stunning, and an absolute must-read. The Moomin novels are timeless stories full of adventure and heartwarming values - perfect for Christmas. * The Bookseller *

About Tove Jansson

The Finnish artist and author Tove Jansson (1914-2001) wrote and illustrated her first Moomin story, The Moomins and the Great Flood, in 1945 as a form of escape from the dark shadows of war. By 1965, when the seventh and penultimate Moomin novel Moominpappa at Sea was published her books had become world famous. The eight Moomin titles would be translated into over fifty languages and remain in print for the next six decades. Tove Jansson lived in Helsinki and a tiny island in the Gulf of Finland which she shared with her life partner, the graphic artist, Tuulikki Pietila.
