Moomin news from Bologna
I’ve just been made a lovely cup of tea whilst I read all about Puffin’s new moomin series for younger readers. It is the Bologna book fair this week, so there will be lots of exciting news stories flying around the world of children’s publishing, but none please me more than hearing that this wonderful series of books will be revitalised and brought to a brand new, primary-aged audience, and that they are whipping up a rights storm at the book fair. Read all about it here in The Bookseller.
I’ve loved the moomin stories for many, many years now. One of my favourite holidays was to Finland a while back where we visited Tampere just to go to the Moomin museum. That’s the furthest I have ever travelled specifically for a museum and it was well worth it!
