A Rare Glimpse of the Elusive Children's Graphic Novel
I haven't heard of a good graphic novel for kids in quite a while. Now we have the following to look forward to:
Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip -- Book One, Tove Jansson, Drawn & Quarterly, Hardcover, 96 pages, November 2006, 1894937805 (ISBN), $19.95
Intrigued? I didn't read any of Jansson's fiction as a kid, but I know that the Moomin books are mighty popular, even to this day. What I didn't know was that Jansson created a comic strip of her characters in the early 1950s. Now they've been collected and edited accordingly and look just perfect for graphic novel collections everywhere.
