Created by Swedish-speaking Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson, the Moomins have been enchanting readers around the world since the first Moomin story, Moomins and the Great Flood, appeared in 1945. Now her stories are amongst the best-loved in the world, celebrating themes of love, tolerance and equality mixed with a good dose of common sense.
Some of the items below are part of a special partnership between Oxfam and Moomin Characters to raise funds for Oxfam projects supporting women and girls worldwide, such as The Invisible Child book and the Equality For All charity gift. Around the world today, you're more likely to be poor if you're a woman. Beating poverty for good means making the world a fairer place, and ensuring that no one is held back by discrimination or inequality.
