Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Whimsical and charming, Moomin’s (mis)adventures suggest an Alice in Wonderland dream world with odd beings, unexplained connections, and events that freewheel out of control.” —Library Journal

“Moomin is about freedom, tolerance, and optimism amid frustration, loss, and fear.” —Modern Painters

“A lost treasure now rediscovered–one of the sweetest, strangest comic strips ever drawn or written. A surrealist masterpiece. Honest.” —Neil Gaiman
