Synopsis

A beautiful and classic picture book, debossed and foiled, the paperback edition of Christmas Comes to Moominvalley is the perfect gift for Moomin fans of all ages.

This is an exquisitely illustrated and authentic re-telling of Tove Jansson's classic story The Fir Tree, in which the Moomins are woken up from their winter sleep to be told that 'Christmas' is coming. The only trouble is, the Moomins have no idea who, or what Christmas is...

The sensitively adapted words in this classic picture book capture Tove Jansson's uniquely wise, perceptive and original voice, and are paired with delicate, painterly illustrations full of character and detail and based on Jansson's original drawings and colour plates. A new generation of readers will enjoy meeting the loveable Moomin family and friends, with their special values of tolerance, kindness and integrity, as they prepare for their very first Christmas and try to solve the puzzle of what 'Christmas' is really all about.
