Mumindalens alfabet

Mumindalens alfabet (Moominvalley’s Alphabet) is an introduction to the alphabet, as well as a tour of the magical Moominvalley. In this colorful ABC book, we get to meet Tove Jansson’s beloved Moomintroll, but also come upon unknown toffles and other exciting characters from the original Moomin stories.

The beautiful book offers the joy of discovery for Moomin enthusiasts of all ages. The illustrations are from Tove Jansson’s original stories of Moomintroll and his family.
