Tove Jannson’s Moomintroll books are among the most unique and charm-laden works of literature ever created for young people, and the adventures of the Moomins and their friends unfold with wry humor and unexpected turns that make reading them aloud a cozy pleasure. In Moominland Midwinter, young Moomintroll awakens from his family’s customary hibernation to find a perplexing — but exciting — world of snowy activity all around him. Ages 9+
