Heads Up: MOOMIN’S WINTER FOLLIES and MOOMINVALLEY TURNS JUNGLE

Coming this fall from Drawn and Quarterly:

Moomin’s Winter Follies description:

Due to the resounding success of the hardcover Moomin comics by Tove Jansson and Lars Jansson, D+Q is re-releasing these classic comics in an all-new format. Available in an affordable kid-proof but kid-friendly flexicover, and in full-color for the first time, these books are slimmer versions of the hardcovers, with one story in each volume while previous editions collected four. Moomin wakes up one morning to find the pond frozen over, and rather than hibernate, the family decides to brave the winter weather. At first, their wintry adventure seems to be going swimmingly, until Mr. Brisk of the Great Outdoors Club takes over and forces everyone to embrace the winter sports, whether they want to or not.

Due to the resounding success of the hardcover Moomin comics by Tove Jansson and Lars Jansson, D+Q is re-releasing these classic comics in an all-new format. Available in an affordable kid-proof but kid-friendly flexicover, and in full-color for the first time, these books are slimmer versions of the hardcovers, with one story in each volume while previous editions collected four. A crate filled with tropical seeds washes ashore, and when Moominmamma plants the seeds, a lush rainforest erupts in Moominvalley. When Stinky liberates some exotic animals from the zoo, chaos ensues, and the Moomins are forced to prove once and for all whether or not they’re related to hippopotamuses.

Moomin’s Winter Follies and Moominvalley Turns Jungle will each be 48 pages in length.

The online pre-order price is currently CDN$8.95 a piece.
