“A lost treasure now rediscovered--one of the sweetest, strangest comic strips ever drawn or written. A Surrealist masterpiece. Honest.” ―Neil Gaiman
“[Jansson's] work soars with lightness and speed, and her drawings only echo her writing: delicate but precise, observant yet suggestive . . . Jansson was exceptional, an exuberant explorer of emotional independence and interdependence, a liberating force.” ―Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Moomin is gorgeous, and is flat out the best Moomin book I've ever seen. Tove Jansson was a natural cartoonist. These strips are clever, gentle, witty, and completely engrossing.” ―Jeff Smith, cartoonist of Bone
About the Author
Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was born in Helsinki and spent much of her life in Finland. She is the author of the Moomin books, including Comet in Moominland and Finn Family Moomintroll. Born into an artistic family―her father was a sculptor and her mother was a graphic designer and illustrator―Jansson studied at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and L'École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In addition to her Moomin books, she also wrote several novels, drew comic strips and worked as a painter and illustrator. In 1966, she was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her body of work. Jansson had a studio in Helsinki but spent most of her time at her home on a small island called Klovharu.

I had never seen the comic strips, and was delighted to find them. Though they lack the literary finesse of the longer books, they are still charming and funny, and full of wit and satire- displaying through these fanciful critters all the frailties of human behavior. Great for children of all ages.
I'd read all her books but had never seen these.
I've returned to them often.
Question though: How can they call is The COMPLETE comic strip and release two volumes???
