"The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring." (Wall Street Journal)
"A lost treasure now rediscovered . . . A surrealist masterpiece." (Neil Gaiman)
"Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal." (Philip Pullman)
Love the moomins, but did not like the narrator and the overly dramatized rendition. Sadly disappointed, think Kate Winslet might perform a better version of these classics.
