Tove Jansson: Work and Love

by Tuula Karjalainen
£12.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2016)

Tove Jansson: Work and Love by Tuula Karjalainen The definitive illustrated biography of one of the most unique and beloved children's authors of the 20th century, the creator of the Moomins.
 
Tove Jansson (1914-2001) led a long, colourful and productive life, impacting significantly the political, social and cultural history of 20th-century Finland. And while millions of children have grown up with Little My, Snufkin, Moomintroll and the many creatures of Moominvalley, the life of Jansson - daughter, friend and companion - is more touching still.
 
This book weaves together the myriad qualities of a painter, author, illustrator, scriptwriter and lyricist from fraught beginnings through fame, war and heartbreak and ultimately to a peaceful end.
