5.0 out of 5 stars Such a joy to retrieve childhood memories, 25 Feb 2010
I remembered reading "Comet in Moominland" as a kid over 50yrs ago. Just by chance I put the title into Amazon and the book came up. Under a fiver and it was again mine. I read it again (at 62yrs) and lent it to my girlfriend - what a complete joy. The book is for age 7yrs +, but we both loved it. Superb drawings, great writing - no wonder kids today who havn't shared such literary wonders can't read, or even deeper, share in the benifits of an ethos of care, love and family that this book portrays - and I am sure even the author never thought of this at the time it was writen, as at that time it was probably the norm.
Buy the book, look,laugh,think - were have we all gone so wrong to not think this an ideal for life.
