Then a crack appeared in the ground, and Moomintroll's toothbrush slipped straight down into the dark and yawning earth.

Review by tripleblessings
The 4th book in the fantasy series of Moomin family adventures, written and illustrated by Tove Jansson. Strange fantasy creatures, funny adventures, endearing cartoon drawings. A bit hard to understand if you don't know the characters from previous books. (The first book is called Finn Family Moomintroll, in which a family of fantasy creatures discover a magical hat.)
Review by sirfurboy
A book that evokes images of long summer evenings, where all is well with the world. A perfect book for children. I loved this one and read it three or four times as I grew up.
