Winter has come to Moominvalley which means that it's time for Moomintroll's best friend, Snufkin, to travel south. All the excitement of the falling snow does nothing to comfort Moomintroll whose sadness at his friend's departure is movingly captured in Tove Jansson's illustrations. What will make him feel better? Gently exploring the nature of friendship, this is a picture book for all ages.

About Tove Jansson

Tove Jansson was born in Helsingfors, Finland, in 1914. Her mother was a caricaturist who designed 165 of Finland's stamps and her father was a sculptor. She studied painting in Finland, Sweden and France, and subsequently became a book illustrator. Her extraordinary illustrative style is seen as a design classic the world over. Originally written in Swedish, the Moomintroll books have been translated into 34 languages and adapted for television, film, radio and opera. Tove Jansson lived alone on a small island in the gulf of Finland, where most of her books were written. She died in 2001
