Moomin News

I only just realized how infrequently the 211 blog talks about the Moomin obsession that unites the Librairie Staff. Let's just say that Moomins are a big deal around here, and with a little help from Penguin reprints, we are finally able to reflect that in the kids, French and YA sections of the bookstore.

Anglo...

Franco...

Initiation to Finnish cuisine!

Check it out! A complete collection of the reprinted novels:

Treasures include Moominland Midwinter, Moominsummer Madness, and Moominpappa's Memoirs. I honestly can't imagine a better way to spend a rainy/snowy/flurried evening like this one than with a mug of cocoa and a Moomin novel. As a kid I always wanted to have the sorts of adventures they had, and as an adult I'm jealous of their pancake suppers and constant escapades.


Board books for the very wee:

And did you spot Who will comfort Toffle? in that delightful mess of Moomin? No? Well I'm pleased to share a little more of it here, because it's pretty wonderful too.




Rhyming couplets! Sea monsters! The Hemulen and Sniff and Toffle and Snufkin sitting in a flower! Honestly guys, this is as good as it gets.
