The Real Moomin Mamma: Tove Jansson


With their ungainly, hippopotamus-like appearance, the Moomins are unlikely literary heroes but Tove Jansson’s family of trolls have enchanted young readers since 1945. This eclectic set of characters from Moominvalley enjoy fantastical tales of adventure, and Jansson’s work in children’s literature earned her the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1966. Many people don’t know that Jansson also wrote for adults. Discover the story behind this famous Finn.
