Review by sirfurboy
My favourite book in this excellent series for primary school children. I still enjoyed it when I was too old for it - I remember re-reading it when I was as old as 11! I read it so many times, my copy (which I still have) is falling apart and looks mangled enough that if someone said it had been through a washing machine, you would have to believe it!Bought this series for my daughter too, and she loves it. (I didn't give her my mangled copy!)
Review by MelissaRogerson
I loved Moomin novels when I was a child, but never managed to get my elder daughter enthused. Finally, after two years of nothing but Rainbow Magic, my seven-year-old has branched out and now demands "Moomintroll" at night - even reading to ME after I claim that mummy's voice is tired and besides, it's past your bedtime. Looking forward to making our way through the series. Can't believe these were written in the 1940s - they haven't dated much at all. Kudos to the translation.

A delightful and fun story by Jansson - one of the most accessible of her Moomintroll stories to start with in English.
