Online Finds: Moomin Book Pack Giveaway at

Books & Mags

Moomins are these eccentric, troll-like creatures created by the Swedish-speaking Finnish author Tove Jansson. Being a Finn, I grew up with Moomin stories. Although I haven’t read anything Moomin in years, I still vividly remember being afraid of hattifatteners and enchanted by the dreamy, wonder-filled, subtle world.

Now North Americans have the chance to win an 8-pack of Moomin novels from The giveaway is open to legal residents of 50 United States and D.C., and Canada (excluding Quebec); it closes at 12:00 p.m. EST on Aug 12, 2014.
