New 'Moomin' Series Bookmarks Publishing Deal

Caroline Mickler helped secure the deal. As master publisher, Macmillan will debut a series of "Moominvalley" books worldwide in 2019. In a separate but related deal, Macmillan will also publish a new line of illustrated picture books and storybooks inspired by Tove Jansson’s original tales.

The first title, Christmas Comes to Moominvalley, was released this month.

“We’ve loved working with Macmillan–their combination of creativity and a deep understanding of the rich world Tove created has already led to some beautiful and imaginative books, including the stunning Moomin Colouring Book and greatly anticipated Moomin’s Craft Book,” says Sophia Jansson, creative director of Moomin Characters and niece of Tove Jansson. “We’re delighted that they will be continuing their excellent work and are joining us on this exciting new animation journey.”

The “Moominvalley” TV series will premiere in the U.K. in spring 2019 and in Finland and select territories later that year
