Synopsis: The definitive illustrated biography of one of the most unique and beloved children's authors of the 20th century, the creator of the Moomins. Tove Jansson (1914-2001) led a long, colorful, and productive life, impacting significantly the political, social, and cultural history of 20th-century Finland. And while millions of children have grown up with Little My, Snufkin, Moomintroll, and the many creatures of Moominvalley, the life of Jansson—daughter, friend, and companion—is more touching still. This book weaves together the myriad qualities of a painter, author, illustrator, scriptwriter, and lyricist from fraught beginnings through fame, war, and heartbreak, and ultimately to a peaceful end.

About the Author: Tuula Karjalainen is a Finnish art historian and non-fiction writer who has previously worked as a director of the Helsinki Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki. As the author of Tove Jansson's biography, Karjalainen has become an expert not only on Jansson's writing and art but also on her decades of personal correspondence and journals.
