C'era una volta una bambina che aveva una nonna serena, un padre preso dalle sue sculture, amichette scontente, amici marinai burberi; negli anni, insensibilmente, questi personaggi hanno abbandonato la loro natura umana e sono diventati animali, che Tove Jansson ha disegnato e descritto: Mamma Mumin, Papà Mumin, Misa, Tabacco. Appena mettiamo piede nella Valle dei Mumin, subito ne veniamo catturati: niente è più reale di questi esseri dolci e poetici e delle loro avventure, per straordinarie che siano. Trovano un Cappello-Folletto in cui gettano gusci d'uovo e ne escono nuvole, ci entra il troll Mumin e ne risulta mutato in un mostriciattolo che solo la sua mamma riconosce. E non sono strani i Fungarelli, senza bocca e senza orecchie? E Dada e Sasa, col loro linguaggio dadese e sasese? Ma su tutto getta la sua magia il Mondo Nordico, coi colori del cielo primaverile e del cupo grande mare selvaggio, da cui emergono affascinanti Regine di Legno. Età di lettura: da 9 anni.

Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend . A charming return to the land of Moomin Valley, in which Moomintroll and his friends discover a Hobgoblin's magical top hat. Delightful mayhem ensues.
This book is the reason I learned to read. My mother read it aloud to me once and then refused to read it again. In fact, she washed her hands of the whole series on the grounds that it was "creepy". I was forced - forced! - to teach myself to read, if I wanted any more Moomins, ever. I got my reveng Leggi tutto
"It's finished. There isn't a stamp, or an error that I haven't collected. Not one. What shall I do now?" "I think I'm beginning to understand," said Moomintroll slowly. "You aren't a collector anymore, you're only an owner, and that isn't nearly so much fun." My children and I believed we were only Leggi tutto
I liked, but didn't love Comet in Moominland . Finn Family Moomintroll though really captures the same wonderfulness that the Moomin comic strips do. This book is a bit more episodic than Comet , but it feels more cohesive. Maybe the Moomintroll is best when he isn't on long adventures with his friend Leggi tutto
I absolutely adore Tove Jansson's Moomintrolls and their exploits, and the 1970s German language translations by Vivica and Kurt Bandler were favourites of my childhood (and are still considered sweet and nostalgic gems to be reread over and over again, although my copies are falling apart and I now Leggi tutto
Marketed as a standalone novel (although it is technically part 3 of a series), Finn Family Moomintroll is one of those books written for children, but that endures as a classic for all ages. I'm not sure if it's the quirky characters, the wonderful illustrations or the imagination poured into the s Leggi tutto
As a child, I loved The Moomins, and as an adult, I adore them, and I think my obsession with them has gone just one step further. I mean, I have Moomin candles, a tea caddy, plushes, a bag, various mugs and a beautiful Moomin poster, right above my bookcase. They shaped my childhood, and if one nee Leggi tutto
Growing up with the Moomintrolls could be every child's wish because Moominmamma loves all her family no matter what they do. The Hobgoblins magic hat had changed Moomintroll into a strange creature. Now he needed his mother's help. Moomintroll felt quite confused and took hold of a pair of enormous Leggi tutto
(in Finnish/Swedish - "The Magician's Hat", first released in Swedish (1948), then in Finnish 10 years later. Some later books were translated faster.) I like how you don't really need to start from the beginning in this series. Some parts of the book are already familiar to me; there's no Little My Leggi tutto
I feel sacrilegious in rating this book with just 2 stars. I almost “graded” it higher. I apologize to everyone who loves this book. I’ve gotten over it now, but for years I was extremely perturbed when others I knew didn’t love A Wrinkle in Time and some of my other favorites. I apologize to The Musk Leggi tutto
