Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is Scandinavia's best known and best loved children's author. Her Moomin series, about a young Moomintroll, his family and friends, has been published in thirty-five languages and is the subject of plays, films and a TV animation. The Moomins and the Great Flood was her first ever Moomin story.
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.
