The Moomins, trolls who live in the northers woods, were created by the swedish-finnish author Tove Jansson (1914-2001). Not only children have learned to love the Moomin stories. Especially the later books also handle many adult topics.
The first Moomin-Book ever was released in 1944, the ninth and last one in 1970. Tove Jansson also made 4 picture books about the Moomins.
The life of the Moomins is imprinted by love to nature and all it's creatures, a tolerant, lovely and open attitude toward life and a latent desire for adventures.
