The Mymbles - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

A large number of characters are found in the Moomin series by Tove Jansson. The original Swedish names are given with the etymologies and word associations suggested by Bertills 2003. Moomintroll (Swedish: Mumintrollet – invented mumin + troll, "troll"; also simply Moomin) – the protagonist of most of the books, a spirited troll with a keen sense of adventure and fun. Moomintroll views the world with a feeling of wonderment for such simple pleasures as collecting stones and shells. As gullible as he is enthusiastic, he is also naïve and extremely good-natured. He is in love with Snorkmaiden. In the cartoon strip he finds himself beset by endless problems, and is almost always unhappy, though this is by no means the case in the books. Moominmamma (Swedish: Muminmamman) – the mother of Moomintroll. She very rarely gets cross and takes even the most distressing circumstances (such as the arrival of a comet, or being washed away by a flood) in her stride. Moominmamma would permit anything to her child and his friends, even smoking in the comics (she says it's good for the stomach).
