Book Description

28 Aug 2013 Moomin
"The Moomin family moves to a remote island for the sake of art Another classic Moomin story reworked in full color, with a kid-proof but kid-friendly size, price, and format. Moominpappa has committed to writing a Great Novel About the Sea, and so the whole family moves to a desolate island where Moominpappa becomes the lighthouse keeper. It soon becomes apparent that there are a few problems with the island: It s haunted, there s nowhere to enjoy a good cup of tea, and the rat family living in the transistor radio has strictly forbidden the Moomins from using the radio until the children have all grown up and moved out. Determined, the Moomins set about planting a rose garden, painting the beacon cheery colors, and finding other ways to make the lonely place their own. In the end, though, is a bleak lighthouse any place for a Moomin? Tove Jansson s flawless cartooning is brought to life in a whole new way within these pages. A delight for the whole family!"

Product Description

Review

"Here is where Jansson's weird but true world begins; where fear, loneliness and insecurity are banished by love and the force of imagination." --"Time""[Jansson's] work soars with lightness and speed, and her drawings only echo her writing: delicate but precise, observant yet suggestive . . . Jansson was exceptional, an exuberant explorer of emotional independence and interdependence, a liberating force." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review""A lost treasure now rediscovered--one of the sweetest, strangest comics strips ever drawn or written. A surrealist masterpiece. Honest." --Neil Gaiman, author of "Sandman, American Gods" and "Fragile Things""Moomin is gorgeous, and is flat out the best Moomin book I've ever seen. Tove Jansson was a natural cartoonist. These strips are clever, gentle, witty, and completely engrossing." --Jeff Smith, cartoonist of "Bone"

5.0 out of 5 stars Moomin and the Sea 28 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great, fun story that will delight children and adults alike. It takes elements from Moominpappa at Sea, with Moominpappa wanting to be a lighthouse keeper, but the story does take a different much more humorous direction. I don't want to spoil it, so I will say no more about the story, but I heartily recommend this book. The comic strips have been colourised, but the effect is quite subtle and works very well. I have read this story twice already and can see me returning to it in a few days!
