"[Moomin is] a quirky, original comic strip masterpiece." -Myla Goldberg, author of Bee Season

Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Volume Nine welcomes readers back to the beloved world of Moominvalley, where pancakes and jam are a perfectly acceptable supper and a damsel in distress can live in a prefabricated castle. The ninth volume of Tove and Lars Jansson's classic comic strip features the beloved "Fuddler and Married Life" story. Together, the four stories in this collection display the poignancy, whimsy, and philosophical bent that constitute the Moomins' enduring appeal.

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
