A lost treasure now rediscovered-one of the sweetest, strangest comic strips ever drawn or written. A surrealist masterpiece. Honest.-Neil Gaiman

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Lars Jansson (1926-2000) was a published author at sixteen before he taught himself to be a cartoonist in order to replace his sister, Tove, on the Moomin strip.

Not awful, but not as good as expected 24. August 2014
Von I will think of a clever name later - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dedicated fans of the Moomin books will of course want to read this. Unfortunately, it's one of the weaker entries in the ever-growing series. If you (or the people for whom you're shopping) are new to the Moomin comics, I would recommend starting with one of the previous eight volumes rather than this one.

Physically, the book is beautiful -- solidly bound and printed on high-quality paper.

I personally found the four stories here a little bit dull -- they seemed less inventive, charming, and unpredictable than usual. The first of the four ("Damsel in Distress") is probably the strongest, and also the most reminiscent of the style of previous entries in the series.

Visually, something seems to have gone a bit wrong here. The strips are inconsistent in the quality of their reproduction, with some looking as if they'd been hastily scanned from an old newspaper and not cleaned up well. In other cases the linework looks like somebody tried to darken it up, not very skillfully. In some of the strips, the lettering is the same plain and easily read style that appeared in the earlier volumes, but other strips have a strange, idiosyncratic lettering style that's harder to read.

But the worst problem -- and it's painful to type this -- is that the quality of the drawing does not really live up to the standard set by both Lars and Tove in the other books. This is particularly true in the final story in this volume, which is all about Mymble. To be frank, she looks terrible. In many cases her head is faint, while in other cases she has excessively coarse, dark ink. (She also doesn't look much like Mymble ... ) In general, throughout this volume the drawing is a bit sloppy.

All that said, I don't regret having bought this, and for the sake of completeness I'll keep it in my collection. But I hope the remaining volumes in the series return to the higher quality that characterized the first eight books.

Fans, tread carefully - the casual, steer clear 11. September 2014

If you're a fan of the Moomin comic strips and have been following them up to this point, you will want to have this. If you are not already involved in this series, this is not the book to start with; any of the previous eight volumes are far worth your time, for this is a book only true fans can enjoy.

The first story is decidedly the best, where the Moomins unwittingly disrupt a film shoot and, believing that the damsel in distress is just that, the heroic hearts of Moomin and Moominpappa spring to action, with catastrophic results. It's a hilarious story and a great continuation on the whimsical stories Lars and Tove have done up to this point.

The second story, "Fuddler and Married Life", is dire. 70% of the story focuses on the Fuddler and his wife. Why invest so much time on such bland, and really quite horribly unlikable, characters? The few moments when the Moomins show up are breaths of fresh air.

Now we come to a weird, damning flaw of this volume; the quality of drawing and of line takes a big dip from the third story on. Visually, it looks choppy, as if taken from a photocopier with the contrast set way too high. Whether that's the drawing or the reconstruction is not clear, but there is a clear jump downward, visually, between "Fuddler and Married Life" and "Sniff's Sports Shop".

This book belongs in your collection if you've been following this series, but the casual would do well to stick with the other books in the series, and I'm waiting with baited breath for the next volume in the hope that it will return to the quality set by the previous volumes.
Wonderful! 20. August 2014

I'm sure that anyone reading this review will already be familiar with these wonderful collections of comic strips from the old London Evening News. As a childhood lover of Tove Jansson's books, I was delighted when these volumes began to be issued annually, and I've bought each one soon after release. I had thought that I might become less enthused once Lars took over from Tove, but this has not been the case, and I have continued to enjoy each and every collection. This one is just as much fun as any of its predecessors.

(NB: on Amazon this book is listed as having 112 pages, but this must be an error as my copy has 80 pages of comic strips only).

Here's a brief list of contents (without giving away any significant plot details):

(1) Damsel in Distress: a film is being made in moomin-valley and the discovery of a damsel in distress strikes deep into the heroic hearts of Moomintroll and Moominpapa. Naturally this leads to all kinds of moomin misunderstandings and unexpected consequences.

(2) Fuddler and Married Life: here we learn more about the ever-so-tender relationship between those unique beings the Fuddler and Jumble, and the responsibilities of safeguarding their button collection. This is probably my favourite in the collection.

(3) Sniff's Sports Shop: Sniff inherits a sports shop from a great grand-aunt. Despite his ever-present interest in money, Sniff is always less adept in turning his get-rich schemes into hard cash. I was interested to learn that Sniff's uncle sends him a monthly remittance "for keeping out of his end of moomin-valley".

(4) Mymble's Diamond: Mymble has been sent a ring by Rinaldo (to whom she has written 412 letters). The moomin-valley rumour mill quickly escalates this into a fifty carat diamond, and Mymble's lifestyle is forced to change.
