The Dangerous Journey

Further Tove Jansson treasures have been uncovered by Sort of Books

“A delightful picture book in rhyme that offers the very last glimpse of Moomin Valley as drawn by Jansson herself.

A little girl is transported with the help of magic glasses from the tedium of a summer afternoon into an exciting world of mangrove swamps, spluttering volcanoes and sea, where birds fly upside down and wild things threaten to pounce. But she is not alone. Old friends from Moomin Valley – Hemulen, Sniff, Snufkin, Thingummy & Bob – have joined her in her journey, and Tooticky too, who rides to their rescue in a stripey balloon.

And who should be waiting to celebrate their safe landing? Why, Moomin of course.

This brand new version of a classic book pairs Jansson’s irresistible artwork with a playful rhyming text by one of Britain’s star poets and calligraphy by Peter Blegvad.”
