The Moomins are charming little trolls created by Finnish writer Tove Jansson. The first Moomin book was published 1945, but Moomins became world-famous after the Japanese anime for television. Today their adventures have been translated into 38 languages. The Moomins are friendly, peace-loving, white and round trolls with large snouts, resembling hippopotamuses. Each troll has a very unique character which adds to their charm. They live in Moominvalley, a haven of peace and security, but they experience exciting adventures worth sharing. Their adventures, humour and philosophy are adored both by children and adults.
