these are my favorite characters of all time
they were created by a woman, Tove Jansson, from Finland who also drew all the pictures
my favorite character is Little My – always able to find the fun in any situation!!
when I lived in residence at University, we were allowed to paint our dorm doors – we had a wonderful scene of Moomintroll and Little My having fun!!
this is Little My sliding down an icy slope – later she finds a silver tray and uses that!!
and here is Moomintroll – all excited because the sun is coming up
these are two of the pictures we copied for our dorm dooors!!
here is the Moomin family and some friends!! I hope you enjoy the whole series!! They were written when I was little and are still in print. You can find many Moomin fan sites as well as merchandise stores on the Internet.
and the front cover of the first DVD set which will, hopefully, eventually include the entire television series
Tove Jansson also wrote several picture books for younger fans!!
Little My may be last in the list but she will always be FIRST in my heart!!
this is a wonderful story about being shy and afraid
the comic strip about Moomins is also being released
and here is a story about the island where Tove Jansson spend much of her life – off the coast of Finland. Although not written for children, it is a wonderful story that shows where many of her ideas came from.
