Stories of Moomin valley is very popular in Japan, but I recognise that it is not well known in the UK.  Finish post has issued several set of stamps on this children books, which were fist published in 1954.

In this set of stamps from 2007, Moominmama is cooking outdoor.  Also they tell us that Finland is a contry of water.

ムーミンは日本では誰もが知っているけれど、英国ではあまり知られていません。フィンランドではムーミンに題材をとった切手がたくさん発行されています。

このシリーズではムーミンママが湖畔のたき火で料理をしています。トンボや咲き乱れる花が晩夏を思わせる色合いで、フィンランドが水の国であることを教えてくれます。
