Moominsummer Madness, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


It all began with a hot day in June, and a volcano dropping black ash on Moominmamma's washing.

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

Then a great flood wave came crashing through Moomin Valley. And that was why the Moomins found themselves a new home, and why they all had so many strange adventures, ones that were odd even by Moomin standards. . .

Review by

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

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.
