Praise for Tales from Moominvalley. Written and illustrated by Tove Jansson; Translated by Thomas Warburton. Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was born in Helsinki and spent much of her life in Finland

Praise for Tales from Moominvalley. There is, in short, everything in the Moon books: giant comets and secret caves and tree houses and stilts and magic-carpet clouds and amusement parks run by despotic practical-joking kings and time machines and ski instructors. Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was born in Helsinki and spent much of her life in Finland. She is the author of the Moomin books, including Comet in Moominland and Finn Family Moomintroll.

Tales from Moominvalley (Swedish: Det osynliga barnet och andra berättelser Literally: The Invisible Child and other stories) is the ninth in the series of Tove Jansson's Moomin books and the seventh of long format ones, published in 1962. Instead of a novel, this is a book of short stories

Tales from Moominvalley (Swedish: Det osynliga barnet och andra berättelser, literally "The Invisible Child and other stories") is the sixth book in the Moomins series by Finnish author Tove Jansson.

Tales from Moominvalley (Swedish: Det osynliga barnet och andra berättelser, literally "The Invisible Child and other stories") is the sixth book in the Moomins series by Finnish author Tove Jansson. Unlike all the other books, which were novels, it is a collection of short stories, the longest book in the series. The book forms the basis of episodes 9, 10, 13, 24, and 36 of the 1990 series. The book contains nine stories: The Spring Tune (Vårvisan).

Nine buoyant, fantastic tales recount how the Moomin family spent their first Christmas out of hibernation, how they saved young Ninny from a life of invisibility, and what happens when Moomintroll catches the last dragon.

If you grew up with the Moomintrolls just as I did, you'll probably be just as happy as I was to know that the books are not only available but still in print and you can order brand new unblemished copies. If you didn't grow up with the Moomintroll books, it's never too late to learn to love them or teach the kids in your life to do so. To the uninitiated, it's hard to explain what makes the Moomintrolls so great. Sometimes there are great adventures in their tales but often they are distinguished from other so-called children's literature by the quiet, philosophical bent of much of the text. Either way they're gems not to be missed. (NOTE: when I say "so-called children's literature" it's not because I disdain children's literature but rather that I disdain the idea that it's just for children. A Wrinkle in Time, the Moomintroll books, The Phantom Tollbooth, these are great books and they remain worth reading at any age.)

I've bought this book for several people now. It's one of our favorites. Little guy is 5, and I'm way older. The illustrations are interesting and many. The stories almost defy description. Many are allegories for psychological challenges... and social difficulties. All are sweet, occasionally melancholy, unexpectedly and irreverently funny, and poetic. The writing is really some of the most un-self-conciously skillful I've encountered. On par with Alfredo Vea Jr, Sr. Suess, Lynda Barry and Amy Herrick (at her best--At the Sign of the Naked Waiter).

The excerpt that sold me on this book, and which is still one of my favorites, is from The Spring Tune: "'It's the right evening for a tune,' Snufkin thought. A new tune, one part expectation, two parts spring sadness, and for the rest just the great delight of walking alone and liking it."

The narratives are fairly easy to understand. Nothing about this book is unnecessarily obscure/obtuse, but neither is it ever predictable. What a strange and wonderful combination.

Just buy it, you won't regret it. Buy all of the Moomin books. Maybe skip the comet one.

These books are wonderful! Great for young readers and fun for adults too. Nothing like a good adventure story with adorable characters. Very excited to gift this to my niece who is Moomin obsessed.

Arrived in great condition. Wonderful stories. I now have the full set of 8 books. I will hang on to them and pass them on to my great-grandchildren or great neices and nephews. Thank you to Amazon and all the vendors.

These stories are lovely and cute, they make me feel like a child again and the little girl I babysit enjoys them as well.

And not sappy or sentimental. Sometimes with books for younger readers the attempt to provide a gentle and uplifting message is swamped by Hallmark card pieties and sappiness. Jansson's books do not drift into such territory. They are clear-eyed and practical. The characters are flawed, but trying to do right. The stories have honest charm and wisdom, and humor, and are not "message driven". They are ddeft, and light and still satisfying.
So excited to discover this series. Has been a big hit
