Tove Jansson


Tove Jansson was a writer, artist and cartoonist. The most widely read Finnish author abroad, she is best remembered as the creator of the Moomins. She drew her first Moomin in the 1930s just for fun, to tease her little brother by drawing the ugliest creature she could think of. In addition to the Moomin books, which have been translated into fifty languages, she was an acclaimed writer of novels and short stories.
