Summary/Abstract: Moomintroll stories by Tove Jansson were brought to Poland by Wojciech Żukrowski. Their publisher - the same for almost 50 years - is "Nasza Księgarnia". First book translated into Polish from this fairy-tale series (Finn Family Moomintroll) was published in 1964. It is worth mentioning that individual volumes were published in our country in a different order than the order created by the author and more to that, many years after the date of their first edition. Popularity of these books is well demonstrated by the number of reprints and adaptations - all with accompanying lively response from literary critics. The article discusses such issues connected to the presence of T. Jansson's Moomins series on the Polish publishing market as: editions, translations, graphic design, continuations, adaptations for film and stage. Opinions of literary critics on these works were also analyzed.
