A tale of Moomin Valley sees Toffle driven from his home by the frightening noises of the forest. Too shy, at first, to approach the many colourful Moomin characters he passes along the way, he gains confidence by discovering a scared and lonely Miffle who needs his help. Toffle's quest to save Miffle from the dreadful Groke is an inspiring tale that every child (and many adults) are sure to identify with. In Scandinavia, this story by Tove Jansson is even more popular than her Moomin books; in over 40 years since it was published it has never once been out of print.
"In a children's book there must be a path where the author stands still and the child walks on. A threat or a wonder that is never explained. A face that never shows itself entire." (Tove Jansson)商品の説明をすべて表示する
The translation of this text is probably more important than the translation of its companion "The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My," only because that book has gorgeous die-cut artwork which draws a child in. Sadly original translation printings of that book appear to exist only in collector editions that are far to expensive to expose to the ministrations of a child. A re-print of the original translation of that book would really be wonderful.
