Another classic Moomin story reworked in full color, with a kid-proof but kid-friendly size, price, and format.

With a maid to help around the house, will the Moomins become respectable?

A housekeeping and mother-craft expert named Mrs. Fillyjonk moves in next door to the Moomins. Seeing the state of the Moomin house, she takes action, shaming them into hiring a maid. When Misabel the maid arrives, it's immediately clear she needs a little cheering up, and since Mrs. Fillyjonk has mysteriously disappeared, the Moomins set about teaching her how to enjoy life. Lessons and poignant reminders of the importance of simple pleasures abound in Moominmamma's Maid, the classic tale from Tove Jansson.

Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was a legendary Finnish children's book author/artist and creator of the Moomins, who came to life in children's books, comic strips, theater, opera, film, radio, theme parks, and television.

“[Jansson's] work soars with lightness and speed, and her drawings only echo her writing: delicate but precise, observant yet suggestive . . . Jansson was exceptional, an exuberant explorer of emotional independence and interdependence, a liberating force.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A lost treasure now rediscovered, one of the sweetest, strangest comics strips ever drawn or written. A surrealist masterpiece. Honest.” —Neil Gaiman, author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane
