    Review quote
    “The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.” –"Wall Street Journal"“Jansson’s evocations of nature are powerfully succinct. . . . This is a terrific book for reading aloud.”—"The Washington Post Book World"“A lost treasure now rediscovered. . . . A surrealist masterpiece.”—Neil Gaiman“Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal.”—Philip Pullman“Tove Jansson is undoubtedly one of the greatest children’s writers there has ever been. She has the extraordinary gift of writing books that are very clearly for children, but can also be enjoyed when the child, like me, is over sixty and can still find new pleasures with the insights that come from adulthood.”—Sir Terry
    Review text
    The Moomin books - and you should begin with this one - are like a dream of golden summers, dark winters and the poignant transitions between them; of fantastic characters who come and go; of high spirits, family love, enduring friendship; but also of wistfulness, depression, loss and mortality. They are children's books but nobody loves them more than adults. Review by Nicci French, whose books include 'Killing Me Softly' (Kirkus UK)
