The writer and artist Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is a Scandinavian national treasure: she has a museum dedicated to her work in her native Finland, and the Moomin characters adorn everything from mugs to schoolbags. Elsewhere, Moomin stories have been published in 35 languages.
Sophie Hannah is a bestselling poet and author who was shortlisted for the 2007 T.S. Eliot Prize. She has also created the acclaimed English verse translations for A Dangerous Journey and Who will comfort Toffle?
Tove Jansson is doubtless one of the best Finnish artists of all time and also the most widely read Finnish author abroad. Her lifework is immeasurably valuable because of the success she made as a writer, artist and as a cartoonist. She was a multi-talented artist who is mostly remembered as a creator of the Moomins. The Moomin books have been translated into about fifty languages.
In addition to the Moomin books and comics, she received recognition for her short stories and novels. Tove Jansson´s world fame is also recognisable because she succeeded to write for both children and adults at the same time.
