Volume Nine of Children’s Readings is dedicated to the studies of Tove Jansson’s narratives about Moomintrolls. The scholarship dedicated to this famous Scandinavian author (1914–2001), who was recognized as a classic for children’s literature of the XXth century, is full of gaps and omissions. A significant amount of responses to her books that were translated into Russian in pedagogical literature overpowered the study of this author’s aesthetics and her stories’ literary value. Thus, this particular volume is called to present a new phase in the scholarship of this author and her work. Scholars present in this volume are participants of the International Conference, “Philosophical Experience of Children’s Literature: Moomintrolls and Others”, that was organized in celebration of Tove Jansson’s centennial. Those authors represent different branches of the humanities from philosophy to philology and cultural studies, thus demonstrating different approaches to the subject of their research.
