5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for children!, 14 Nov 2006
I remember every birthday as a child when the eagerly awaited package from Finland finally arrived. Inside the package, I knew that there would be a Moomintroll book, translated into English. This was the first one of the series that I read, and - though the thought of a comet striking the earth is a frightening prospect, indeed - it was an amazing adventure. Tove Jansson weaves elements of humor, ecological awareness, and tolerance in her Moomin books to create magnificent children's literature that is destined to withstand the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful!, 4 Nov 2006
I had no idea that this series existed until recently. This series was completed shortly before Henson passed away, and you can tell that he was intimately involved in the series' creation. Henson was a genius. I recommend this for both adults and children. However, some of the tales, as are many fairy tales, have a "darker" character to them, so I would caution against showing this series to too young an audience. Each story is told in only ~20 minutes.
