Top critical review
on 12 April 2015
For me to give less than 5 stars to any Moomin book feels like an offence to religious conviction. The Moomin books are nothing short of the ultimate standard for all children's novels and short stories.
Unfortunately, even though I have read all the Moomin books several times and still wanted more, this was not the more. It is more like a collection of pointless rhymes with none of the inspiration of the proper Moomin books.
I give it 3 stars (instead of fewer) because it may go down well with children of 4-5. Once your child reaches 6-7 he or she will be ready for Comet in Moominland and Finn Family Moomintroll.
