"Tove Jansson is revered around the world as one of the foremost children�s authors of the twentieth century for her illustrated chapter books regarding the magical worlds of her creation, the Moomins. The Moomins saw life in many forms but debuted to the biggest audience ever on the pages of the world�s largest newspaper, the London Evening News, in 1954. The strip was syndicated in newspapers around the world with millions of readers in forty countries. The Drawn & Quarterly reprints (which began in 2006) are the first time the strip has been published in any form in North America, and they have deservedly reclaimed Jansson�s place among the international cartooning greats of the last century. To date there are seven hardcover volumes of the Moomin comic strip, with over 100,000 units in print, two childrens reprints�The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My and Who Will Comfort Toffle�as well as a biography of how Tove and Lars Jannson became cartoonists, Moomin Every Day. These D+Q Moomin books join the internationally loved Moomin chapterbooks by F.S.G. and the reissued Moomin kids books by Puffin."
