Moomin's Desert Island comic book

USD $7.45

by Tove Jansson

THE MOOMINS PICNIC WITH THEIR ANCESTORS, A PAIR OF PIRATES, AND, BEST OF ALL, MYMBLE

After a disastrous helicopter ride through a thunderstorm, the entire Moomin family is stranded on a desert island—the very island their ancestors came from! They make the best of it, hunting for their supper, exploring mysterious tunnels, and salvaging items from a wrecked pirate ship (including the Mymble!), but their ancestors don’t let them live in peace and quiet for too long. Soon the whole island will have to deal with the explosive consequences of their ancestors’ misbehavior.

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

Praise for Moomin's Desert Island

To know the Moomins was to know Tove [Jansson]. She poured her wit, dreams and fears into the characters.

  The Economist

[Tove Jansson's Moomins feature) scratchy, pen-and-ink sketches and [an] atmosphere of beneficence ... [a] mix of disaster and gentle naïveté.

We might recommend for 6 or 7 years and up, but it varies largely.  The interpersonal and social tensions in the themes are played out and resolved in a medium that we find approachable even for young children, and our children took a keen interest already at ~4 years old in the Moomin stories, although we wouldn't normally recommend them so early, as some of the content might be a bit mature, but we paraphrased the odd bit when they were young.  The Moomin stories hold a fond place in many families' hearts for their enjoyment for the whole family.
