    Review quote
    “The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.” –"Wall Street Journal" “It’s difficult not to be drawn in by the adventures of Moomintroll and his family. . . . The Moominfolk face life’s odd twists and occasional disasters with philosophical calm—an unusual and endearing perspective that will hook readers of all ages.”—"Publishers Weekly"“Jannson’s invention and philosophy of life remain as appealing as ever.”—"The Horn Book"“Read this Finnish classic for Jansson’s quirky humor and lightly satiric view of life.”—"St. Petersburg Press"“A lost treasure now rediscovered . . .

    Review text
    The odd adventures of an even odder group of make-believe characters take them through a tidal wave to the strangest house imaginable with everything made of paper, wood or plaster. They soon discover the house is a theater and they proceed with typical misadventures to write and stage a play. Optimism always reigns as Moominpapa, Moominmama, the Snork Maiden, Little My, Misabel and a host of others engage in a labyrinth of whimsy. The wit here and there may be a bit sophisticated for the age level, but the story loaded with situation will appeal to those with a preference for intricate fancy. (Kirkus Reviews)
