Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On his birthday, Moomintroll wakes up full of excitement. It will surely be the most wonderful day. But when his friends all seem to be too busy to help him celebrate, it doesnt feel wonderful at all—until a happy surprise comes knocking. Kids will be amused to see that even in placid Moominvalley, birthdays can be emotional roller-coasters.

Review:

"This paper-over-board book launches a series based on Jansson's original Moomin stories. Moomintroll — who resembles a white hippopotamus — is dismayed when none of his friends care about his birthday or his new golden button: ' ‘Snorkmaiden, Little My! Look what I've got!' But Snorkmaiden didn't answer. She just went on looking for shells.' But when it's time for his birthday party, he gets a surprise. Bright, digitized colors replace some of the darker shades of Jansson's earlier books, giving readers of a new generation a friendly footpath into Moominvalley. Ages 2 — 6."

About the Author

Tove Jansson (1914-2001) was born in Helsinki and spent much of her life in Finland. She is the author of the Moomin books, including Comet in Moominland and Finn Family Moomintroll. Born into an artistic family—her father was a sculptor and her mother was a graphic designer and illustrator—Jansson studied at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and LÉcole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In addition to her Moomin books, she also wrote several novels, drew comic strips and worked as a painter and illustrator. In 1966, she was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her body of work. Jansson had a studio in Helsinki but spent most of her time at her home on a small island called Klovharu.
