Moomin and the Comet

How will the beloved residents of Moominvalley survive a comet?

Another classic Moomin story reworked in full color, with a kid-proof but kid-friendly size, price, and format.

It's getting hotter and hotter in Moominvalley, and all the creatures have taken note of the troubling weather. After a mysterious cloud appears in the sky one day, an exodus begins. The Hattifatteners, the Nibling, Mrs. Fillyjonk (and all her children), and even Mymble pack up to leave the valley. When they realize the mysterious cloud is a comet headed straight for Moominhouse, Moomin, Little My, and Snorkmaiden decide to leave their home too. As the clock ticks down and the comet nears Moominvalley, the plot thickens. Between a tidal wave and a comet-struck Moomin, the end does seem nigh, but the day may yet be saved.

Tove Jansson's flawless cartooning is brought to life in a whole new way within these pages. A delight for the whole family!

“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
