In communist cuba, where children are without peace of mind, I found a safe haven in this book. I used to read it and feel like a child is supposed to, no worries, free and willing to go on an adventure with Snufkin. I just came across them again after 20 year of not seeing them, and I have found as much delight in reading them as I did when I was a child. I am planning to buy all of them, but this one is always going to be my favorite, it is completely fun and crazy!

I enjoyed this as a little girl, and now am reading it to my 7 year-old son, who loves it as much as I did!

I first read this gem of a book when I was a child living in Helsinki where my dad was on sabatical. I have read it many times in the four decades since. Oozing with charm and loaded with the most wonderful adventures, it's the perfect escape for a day when you're feeling a little blue or any day at all. It will transport you quickly to the magic of summer filled with an amzing cast of highly unique animal characters, and leave you with the feeling that maybe anything is possible, afterall.
