Description of this Book

A beautiful, collectible and classic picture book, lavishly embossed and foiled, Christmas Comes to Moominvalley is the perfect gift for Moomin fans of all ages. An exquisitely illustrated re-telling of Tove Jansson's classic story The Fir Tree, in which 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... with a sensitively adapted picture book text that captures Tove Jansson's uniquely wise and charming voice, paired with delicate, painterly illustrations full of character and detail and based on Jansson's original drawings and colour plates, this new and authorised picture book edition introduces a new generation of readers to the loveable Moomin family and friends.
