The Memoirs of Moominpappa Collectors' Edition - Sort of Books
"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. One fabulous tale follows another, and not just about Moominpappa but Sniff and Snufkin's fathers too - the rather muddled Mudller 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 irrestible.
The hard cover books are published by Sort Of Books in England and feature Tove Jansson’s stunning original artwork, which has been lovingly restored. Each title features full cover art paper jackets, vintage layouts, carefully restored illustrations and beautiful endpapers. Memoirs of Moominpappa has a prologue specially written by Tove for the US edition but never before seen in the UK version.
