Moomins always sleep through the winter while the snow settles all around them, waking up in time for spring and the arrival of Snufkin and other friends. Or they did until one year when Moomintroll happened to wake up and find himself all alone in a sleepy, dusty house in a silent, snow-covered valley. In this moving story of a small, brave Moomin finding his way in the mysterious world of winter we discover that there are always new friends to be found - like the calm and wise Too-ticky and the irrepressible Little My - and new ways to play and be kind. This collectors’ hardback edition is lovingly restored to the original design. Special features include original 50s and 60s cover artworks, fold out maps and gorgeous endpapers. Even the fonts are as close as possible to those used in the 50s. Images have been rescanned from the archives and careful revisions and special touches made by Tove, such as tiny running head commentaries on each page, are included for the first time. These timeless stories with their love of nature, kindness, inclusiveness and a respect for the freedom and creativity of others, have a unique and enduring appeal.
