Finn Family Moomintroll- Tove Jansson


I bought this book at The wonderful Stockmans department store in Helsinki and devoured it in 2 days. A wonderful book for both children and adults that takes your mind deep into the Finnish forest filled with the magical, kind Moomin characters.

The Moomins, if you haven’t already met them, are kind, philosophical creatures with velvety fur and smooth round snouts, who live in a beautiful valley in a forest in Finland

In Finn Family Moomintroll the discovery of Hobgoblins hat leads to the most extraordinary magic and mayhem. Coupled with the arrival of Thingumy and Bob and their mysterious suitcase, the Moomins have never experienced anything quite like this before.

Tove Jansson was a genius of  very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults. Philip Pullman
