The Book about Moomin, Mymble and Little My was the first Moomin picture book by Finnish author Tove Jansson, published in 1952 in Swedish. It is the first Moomin book to be adapted into an iPad app. [1]


Moomintroll is taking milk back home to his mother, Moominmamma when he meets The Mymble who is searching for her missing sister Little My. Together the pair go looking for her.


The book is fully illustrated with all text written in rhyming verse in a box in the corner. Each spread in the book features cut-out holes, having the reader catch a glimpse of the next pages and anticipate 'what happens next' ('Hur gick det sen?' in the original Swedish language).
