      Tove Jansson is really kind of amazing. This is only the second books of hers I've read, the other being The Summer Book. I was impressed then by the subtlety of her writing and her nuanced depiction of complex, contradictory human beings, but I wasn't entirely surprised -- it was an adult book, written about people Jansson knew well personally. I was not expecting a short children's book about cute made up creatures to display the same level of insights into human nature and behavior. But it to [...]

      Take all the self help manuals and holy books in the world, chuck them off a cliff, and replace them with this. The Moomins hold the key to a happy life. Volcanos? Great floods? Natural devastation? Separated families? To the Groke with them! Let's all light a lamp and have some marmalade with our tea!

      Mieleen muistui selkeästi muumijakso, jonka olen nähnyt lapsena.Pidin paljon, muumikirjat selvästi osaavat lumota iästä riippumatta.

      Tohle léto bylo skutečně bláznivé. Považte - výbuch sopky, zaplavené Muminí údolí, rodina žije v plovoucím divadle přineseném povodní a Muminek ve vězení! A nikdo nedokáže čelit těmto katastrofám s větším klidem, než Muminkova maminka. I ty největší protivy pozve ke stolu a pohostí je tím, co zrovna má.Ačkoliv výše zmíněné nepřízně osudu uvrhnou celé Muminí údolí do chaosu, není to truchlivý příběh, ba naopak - je to snad nejsrandovnější Mumi [...]

      I've liked all Moomin books this far, but somehow this one appealed to me even more than usual. The writing style and the atmosphere of the story are exactly as magical as they should be on a Midsummer night, and despite the rather absurd and adventurous happenings the book left me with a very peaceful mood. There's almost something Shakespearean in this, even though there are no fairies. The play within the story is hilarious, and the whole theatre thing just made me laugh so much. I also fangi [...]

      Ack, I love it! *huggles book* Snufkin is my FAVORITE EVER! <3 He's so awesome and just the best! And what he did about the signs . . . and his twenty-four little woodies -- GAAHH SO CUUUUTE!!! <3 I about died from the adorableness and awesomeness of this. Also, I love Little My. She's hilarious. XD All in all, great little book! <3

      น่ารักและสนุกดีอ่านได้เพลินๆ โดยที่ไม่รู้สึกเบื่อหรือเสียดายเวลาแต่ถ้าไม่ได้อ่าน ชีวิตก็ไม่ได้รู้สึกว่าขาดอะไรไปนะแต่ถ้าย้อนวัยกลับไปเมื่อตอนสิบขวบต้นๆเราว่าเราน่าจะต้อ [...]

      I love these stories. They're ostensibly for children, but there's so much deep wisdom in these books that an adult mind will relish them. As I have been doing.The book kicks off with the eruption of a volcano which causes a tsunami which floods Moominvalley, swamping the Moomin house up to the second floor. The reaction by the Moomins and their friends is one of resigned whimsy. Why not cut a hole in the floor in order to look down into the kitchen from above and see what it looks like underwat [...]

      This book seems like it was written by an angel. I love the Moomin comic strip, as reprinted by Drawn and Quarterly, but I was not prepared for a dense, epic, beautiful journey that I was given here. This is as close as we're going to get to the world where Dr. Seuss wrote a novel. What a great thing this is.

      Mattinata calda e afosa, come rimediare? Con i Mumin alle prese con un'inondazione, no?Tornano gli spensierati troll Mumin nati dalla penna ( e dal pennello ) di Tove Jansson, alle prese con eruzioni e inondazioni che li obbligano ad abbandonare l'adorata casa per approdare, è il caso di dirlo, in un teatro galleggiante. Li accompagna un'allegra ed eterogenea comitiva di troll: Mimla e la cattivissima sorellina Mi, la perennemente depressa Misa, il filosofico Spinetto. Naturalmente, non possono [...]

      One of my all time favorites, and perhaps my favorite Moomin book altogether. It is magical, filled with comforting wisdom about life and how to deal when a crisis hits. Moominmamma is the greatest character of all times, I just freaking love her.

    12. Caroline

      This endeared the Moomins (and their friends) to me much more than I anticipated. Things happen, as if in a dream, where the valley floods and Moominmama is worried about breakfast and coffee. They float around on their house until it starts to sink and they move to another floating house.It's endearing and I love everyone's attitudes of going with the flow and not worrying too much about things because they'll all work out. It's reminiscent of Pippi, and I'm really getting a feel for Swedish (o [...]

      Among warm and comforting books for children, this has to be one of the warmest. It takes its character from Moominmamma, who greets every new event (however seemingly problematic) as a delightful experience; for instance, when a rising sea floods her house, she's charmed by how unfamiliar the kitchen looks seen underwater from the ceiling. Furthermore, she has a supreme lack of worry, saying, "Only bad people fare badly." This faith is of course entirely justified in this book's world; in fact, [...]

      Half way through the Moomin series. Another pleasant little adventure, if a tad weird. The Moomin family et al are flooded out by some volcano activity and take to the seas, somehow catching a lift in an adrift theatre. Certain family members get lost and go bobbing about elsewhere and, well, the usual weirdness ensues.Snufkin wasn't in this until over half way through, though he does have a memorable criminal encounter with the despicable park keepers and has to hone his parenting skills, and t [...]

      I just love this book. It's a fine juxtaposition to be reading two Scandinavian authors at once Jansson of Moomin fame and Stieg Larsson, who wrote the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. They are quite opposite and both fascinating in their own right.I find the Moomins charming, funny, and always surprising. If you've never read them and enjoy a good children's story (along the lines of Winnie the Pooh with the wit of Pippi Longstocking) then you might enjoy these wacky and wonderful books.

    16. Tuomas Saloranta

      Nokkelasti rakennettu tarina kaikkine eri käänteineen ja näkökulmineen. Keskeiset hahmot ovat saaneet mukavasti syvyyttä persoonaansa, ja uusia jänniä tyyppejä riittää myös, vaikka näin lyhyessä mitassa osa suuresta hahmogalleriasta harmillisesti jää hieman sivuun etenkin kerronnan jakautuessa useampaan eri juonilinjaan. Miskasta ja Homssusta olisi mieluusti kuullut enemmänkin.

    17. Mia

      I read the Moomin books for the first time when I was about eight, and eighteen years later, I love them more than ever. These stories are sweet and silly, but they also explore existentialism and melancholy, and Jansson's prose is so good! Looking back, I really think she was one of my first writing teachers. And she saved me from seeing everything literally.

    18. Julie Bettina

      How lovely to read about the Moomin family again!I realised while reading this that I've watched the anime A LOT, as I was hearing the characters' voices in my head all the time. Such a nice and cozy evening read!

    19. Les

      Wonderful. Few things are more fun to read with my kids than the Moomins. Tove Jansson is one of a kind.

    20. Bistra Ivanova

      това ще ми четат в леглото в близките месеци :-)засега е супер! *** ами както обикновено - мила и сладка книжчица, която разсмива, натъжава, замисля и създава детски уют в сърцето

    21. Qt

      I really like the Moomin books, and found this one as delightful and charming as the others I've read. A fun summer read!

      Mycket rolig och charmig, mysig och underhållande!! :D Boken hade också sina stunder av spänning!♥

      Herkullisia hahmoja, mielikuvitusta villitseviä tilanteita, vaaraa, laittomuuksia, korkeakulttuuria, välittämistä, huumoria, öistä vandalismia, luonnonkatastrofeja, ihmissuhteita, psykologiaa, filosofiaa, pakomatka ja selviytymistä kriisitilanteissa. Kaikkea tätä yksissä kansissa. Vaikeitakin persoonallisuuksia käsitellään lämpimästi ja ymmärtäen. Tässä on pariin muuhun muumikirjaan verrattuna yhtenäisempi ja selkeämpi juoni. Monen hahmon tarinaa kuljetetaan tahoillaan ja la [...]
