Moomin: Book 2

In the second volume of Tove Jansson’s humorous yet melancholic comic strip, we get four new stories about jealousy, competition, child rearing, and self-reinvention. The Moomins try to hibernate in the fashion of their ancestors, but insomnia places them smack-dab in a winter carnival with the winter-sports-loving Mr. Brisk. The fickle and eternally love-struck Mymble and Snorkmaiden find themselves in competition over a new man. Moominmamma meets her new neighbour, the Fillyjonk, causing her to hire the secretive Misabel as her new maid. Mymble’s mother arrives on the Moomin’s doorstep with seventeen new children. Finally, a prophet arrives, declaring that the happy Moomins are in fact not happy at all and need to get back to nature.
