Finn Family Moomintroll

Meet the Moomins in this world-famous, much-loved children’s classic! 

When Moomin, Sniff and Snufkin discover a Magician’s hat on a mountain top, the strangest things start to happen in Moominvalley…

It is spring in the valley and the Moomins are ready for adventure. Moomintroll and his friends Snufkin and Sniff find the Hobgoblin’s top hat, all shiny and new and just waiting to be taken home. They soon realize that his is no ordinary hat; it can turn anything–or anyone–into something else 

In Finn Family Moomintroll the discovery of the Hobgoblin’s hat leads to the most extraordinary magic and mayhem. Coupled with the arrival of Thingumy and Bob and their mysterious suitcase, the Moomins have never experienced anything quite like this before.

The most important messages of the book are the joy and love of life. Of course also loss and sorrow are part of the story but only like they are part of everyone’s life every now and then. 

The hard cover books feature Tove Jansson’s stunning original artwork, which has been lovingly restored. Finn Family Moomintroll features vintage layouts and carefully restored illustrations.
