Description
Everyone knows that the Moomins sleep through the winter, but this year Moomintroll has woken up in January, in this tale for readers 8 to 12 by Hans Christian Andersen medal winner Tove Jansson (1914–2001). After his initial shock at seeing his familiar haunts under the snow, Moomintroll discovers that winter is worth waking up for after all. In fact, more creatures than he ever imagined inhabit this new world, including a wise newcomer named Too-ticky who introduces him to this most mysterious of all seasons. Tove Jansson's whimsical line drawings are the perfect complement to her charmingly off-kilter story.

"Tove Jansson is undoubtedly one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been. She has the extraordinary gift of writing books that are very clearly for children, but can also be enjoyed when the child, like me, is over 60 and can still find new pleasures with the insights that come from adulthood."—Terry Pratchett

"Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal."—Philip Pullman
