"One cold and windy autumn evening many years ago a newspaper parcel was found on the doorstep of the Home for Moomin foundlings. In that parcel I lay, quite small and shivering with cold."
So begins Moominpappa's remarkable Memoirs, written to delight his son Moomintroll and friends. What emerges is a storytelling itself as one fabulous tale follows another, and not just about Moominpappa but Sniff and Snufkin's fathers too - the rather muddled Muddles and the carefree Joxter. Add to this mix the genius inventor Hodgkins, and a grand finale in which Moominpappa rescues a shipwrecked Moominmamma from the waves, and the fun becomes irresistible.
The Memoirs of Moominpappa which Tove Jansson rewrote from the original Exploits of Moominpappa, is published for the first time in the UK in this Collector's Edition.
