La vita di operosità e divertimento dei Mumin viene sconvolta dall'arrivo di una cometa che potrebbe incenerire la tranquilla zona ai margini del bosco. La comitiva si allarma, si mette alla ricerca di notizie scientificamente inconfutabili organizzando una spedizione all'Osservatorio. Si rifugia in una grotta profonda, in attesa dell'infausto evento, ma alla fine tutto si risolverà nel migliore dei modi e il sole tornerà a splendere, non più offuscato dalla nebulosità della cometa. Età di lettura: da 7 anni.

Moomin and Sniff set off on a journey to the observat Leggi tutto

How can it be that, unlike in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, the Moomin sagas never caught on in the United States? Finnish author Tove Jansson 's tales of the white, hippo-like Moomintroll and his parents, Moominmamma and Moominpappa, would delight children and parents alike, the latter Leggi tutto
A beautiful, ironic parody of the Armageddon -style killer meteorite movie, written before any of them existed. There are so many brilliant little details. I particularly loved the out-of-touch astronomers at the observatory, who have calculated exactly when the comet will strike ("possibly four seco Leggi tutto

Re-read 02.04.2020 No change in rating. 15.06.2014 Like so many Finnish children of a certain generation, I grew up watching the Moomins tv-series (there are still reruns every once in a while, and the magic has never faded) and visited Moomin World . Now, to honor Tove Jansson's centenary, I started a Leggi tutto
Just revisited this book for the first time in a long while by reading it aloud to my 6 year-old. Two main thoughts: 1. I love Tove Jansson. She always writes with a slightly off-beat charm (one of my favorite bits in this book is the title of the butterfly collecting Hemulin's book, Moths of the Ea Leggi tutto
"Cik dīvaini tu jūties, ja tu ej un pēc kaut kā ilgojies," saka Mumins, un es jau (eju un) ilgojos pēc nākamās Muminpiedzīvojumu grāmatas.
