In this exquisitely illustrated and authentic re-telling of Tove Jansson's classic story The Fir Tree, 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...

A new generation of readers will enjoy meeting the loveable Moomintoll, Moominpappa and Moominmamma, and all their friends as they experience their very first, and slightly stressful Christmas - and puzzle over what it all means. Find out how the kind and tolerant Moomins work out what really matters at Christmas, in this retelling of Tove Jansson's unique and wise tale - illustrated with delicate, painterly images full of character and detail and based on Jansson's original drawings and colour plates.
