Moominland Midwinter by Tove Jansson

Moominland Midwinter by Tove Jansson: The Moomins usually hibernate for half the year, but one day Moomintroll wakes up to discover a snow-covered world he’s never known. Being a longtime Moomin fan, I was predisposed to enjoy this book. The characters and illustrations are simply charming, depicting an innocence without ignorance. It was not my favorite of the Moomin adventures (I’m not sure it could be without Snufkin), but it was still a fun little tale. I particularly liked Moominmamma’s comments upon waking. She’s my hero.

  1. Thanks for the review. I’ve wanted to read a Moomin book. This is a nice reminder not to put them off anymore.
