Moomin Winter

All the Moomins want to do is sleep through the long, harsh winter, but nothing goes according to plan when several unexpected and unwanted guests show up!

As the Moomins prepare to hibernate through what is going to be the worst winter yet, several unwelcomed guests take advantage of the Moomins’ generosity and keep the family awake throughout the long winter. Their quirky but needy guests prevent the Moomins from hibernating and the chaos only increases with the arrival of a little nibling determined to find out everyone’s secrets. One by one, the nibling sees what the Moomins and each of their houseguests do when no one else is looking.But everyone is ashamed of what the nibling has seen and is determined to keep their secret activities, well, a secret!

What makes Jansson s comics timelessly delightful and particularly timely in today s culture is that she addresses serious, often uncomfortable issues uncertainty, heartbreak, mortality, natural disasters, our ample human imperfections with great compassion and warmth, never chastising or preaching but instead celebrating the light in life and aiming its generous beam at the dark."-Maria Popova, Brainpickings

In Jansson s narratives, whether tilted to children or adults, a debate can be felt rustling under the surface: it s between voices that speak for the open hand of compromise and diplomacy and those that see the truth as naked or nothing, wills that would rather do whatever the hell they like."-James Guida, New Yorker
