Raining On Your Own Parade
This is a heavily revised version of THE EXPLOITS OF MOOMINPAPPA. The changes from the original are, first, to add imitations of plausibility and maturity to a work that benefits from neither, and second, to remove everything about it that was a delight. Hold out for the original version, even if it costs far more.

A bit different from other Moomin-books, but still worth a read!
This installation of the Moomin-books is narrated by Moominpappa - as you can guess from the title. Despite having read other reviews that were less than thrilled with it, I enjoyed this book. Whether it's intentional or not, I thought the dry satire was kind of fun (that being said, I'm an adult... so it may be lost on kids). Plus, it was nice having Snufkin and Sniff's parents introduced (and Little My! I'd been waiting for her arrival!).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
