AUG084010 Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip vol. 3 hc,
9"x12", 104pg, B&W $19.95
by Tove Jansson
'Fifty years ago, Tove Jansson's observations of everyday life-whimsical but with biting undertones-easily caught the attention of an international audience and still resonate today. This third volume returns to Moominvalley, where its beloved inhabitants get tangled up in five new stories. Moomin falls in love with a damsel in distress, an unseasonably warm spell turns the valley into a tropical rain forest, and a flying saucer crashes into Moominmamma's garden. Moominpappa decides to live out his dream of occupying a lighthouse and writing a great seaside novel, only to discover that he hates the sea so close up and has no interest in writing about it, and a variety of curious clubs spring up in the valley. Moomin and Moominmamma do their level best to avoid the whole mess but, of course, get drawn into the muddle.' Volumes 1-2 are offered again.
