In this volume of the Complete Lars Jansson comic, Jansson’s work, already quite polished, takes on a joie de vivre heretofore unseen. The Moomins rebel once more against hibernation, receive an inheritance they’re unprepared for, find colonization a bit of a bore, and decide once and for all that seashells are much prettier than gold nuggets.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Moomin Series:

“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
