Publisher's Summary

If you haven't met a Moomin yet, you're in for the most magical fun! The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Tove Jansson's endearing classic, Tales from Moominvalley, read with warmth (and some lively character voices) by the comedian Hugh Dennis. If you found a tiny golden dragon with green paws, would you know what to do with it? Well, Moomintroll thinks he knows what to do. But when he takes his new-found pet home, things don't quite work out as planned! Here is a delightful collection of stories in which Moomintroll meets some new characters such as the Fillyjonk and the Hattifatteners, as well as sharing adventures with old friends, namely Snufkin and Little My.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Moomin"

    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.
