An excellent introduction to Moomin Valley, 21 Dec 2000
As an avid fan of those lovable characters, the Moomins, this has to be one of my favourite Moomin books. It has a most enchanting plot through which we learn how Moomin came to meet his dear friends Snufkin and the Snork maiden on his quest to stop a comet from destroying his home. Children and adults alike will be delighted by this book which works on two levels, that of the simple storybook, and that which considers many deeply philosophical concepts. No book collection is complete without this unique and brilliant tale.
