The invisible child and The fir tree
In Tove Jansson’s much loved short story, The Invisible Child, the isolated Ninny is helped to regain her voice and take her rightful place in the world using a simple Moomin recipe. She is welcomed into the Moomin family and treated with equality and respect. This is one of the most touching of all Moomin stories and is paired in this unique book with The Fir Tree, the Moomins’ gloriously unselfish take on Christmas. Alongside these two classic stories, this gift edition also includes an exclusive Moomin Gallery, featuring the characters of Moominvalley, compiled by Philip Ardagh.
The Invisible Child and The Fir Tree are taken from Jansson’s short story collection Tales of Moominvalley, first published in 1962. Their themes of tolerance, inclusiveness and respect for others have a resonance and appeal across generations of readers.
