Samy lives on an island archipelago on Finland's southern seaboard. He is foodie, a Swedish speaker and an outdoors expert, spending most of the long summer nights, sleeping beneath the stars. // The legendary creator of The Moomins, Tove Jansson (1914 - 2001), was born in 1914 in Helingsfors, Finland. Her mother was a charicaturist and the designer of many of Finland's stamps, and her father was a sculptor. Tove studied painting in Finland, Sweden and France and later worked as a book illustrator, a designer and strip cartoonist, as well as being involved in theatre d├ęcor and making frescoes in public places. She drew her first Moomin in the 1930s, just for fun, to tease her little brother by drawing the ugliest creature she could think of. Moomin developed a nicer snout and character and in 1939 he became a character in a children's story. The Finn Family Moomingtroll has been a hugely successful book, translated into many languages - many other Moomin stories followed.
In 1966 Tove Jansson was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal - an international award for the best children's book of the year.
