"As appealing as ever." --"The Horn Book
“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 Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring." -"Wall Street Journal" "It's more than forty years since Jansson's Moomintrolls first appeared. I found the writing and invention as appealing as ever. She has a thistledown touch."--"The Washington Post Book World"
