Step into the book!

December 18, 2010

Tove Jansson’s timeless classic picture book The Book about Moomin, Mymble and little My was first published in 1952. In it, the reader is asked what happened next? and is invited to follow the Mymble and little My through the holes in the pages.

Now, fans of the book can literally climb though the holes of the book – in the exhibition at Kulturhuset in Stockholm (open until 29th of May). The exhibition coincides with the celebration of Moomin 65th birthday, which makes Moomin the same age as another Nordic children’s book superstar Pippi Longstocking.
