Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
First published in 1952, the late Jansson's first picture book to feature the Moomins returns with its droll, rhyming text and singular characters intact. Bringing home a thermos of milk, Moomintroll, who resembles a small, white hippopotamus, meets Mymble, searching for her lost sister, along with other creatures. Throughout, die-cuts create a spooky, layered effect, offering a tantalizing peek at what's to come. Readers are repeatedly asked what might occur next in the story, drawing them in further. From the bold colors and oddball creatures to expressive variations in font and inventive die-cuts, the book remains a kid-friendly package and a wonderfully weird vision. All ages. (Nov.)

The Book about Moomin, Mymble and Little My 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Very fun concept for young children (my grandchildren are 6, 4 and 3) - each page allows a little peak into the next page. Even more fun after the book has been read once. My only reservation is that the text is a little hard to read in low light at bedtime. I recommend the book though, and would buy others in the series.

I read this book to my class of third graders. They were enthralled by the holes that loink each page and fascinated by the strange names of the characters. The rhyme makes it enjoyable for all ages - even their much older teacher:)

We used to read this book when I was a child. We lost it, and had been looking to replace it for years. I recently read it to my son's kindergarten class, and the kid's were enthralled. I'm now ordering a copy for the teacher at her request. An enchanting, imaginative story.
