5.0 out of 5 stars Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My, November 20, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My (Hardcover)
This Moomin Book and I go back a long way. I have been a Tove Jansson fan since the early 1950's when I was first introduced to her books. This picture book is colorful and pleasing to eye, the art work clear and concise and imaginative. The storyline progresses through holes on each page. I have read the text in its original Swedish as well as the first English translation. This new edition retains the artwork and the individualzed lettering which describes each character. We follow the adventures of Moomintroll, Mymble and Little My as they meet other Moominland creatures. In this new 2001 translation by Sophie Hannah the language flows nicely without the occasional awkwardness of the old edition while still maintaining the whimsy so characteristic to Tove Jansson. As a teacher I have introduced Jansson books to countless American children and of course my children and grandchildren all have their own copies! I am delighted this book and others now are available at Amazon. P.K.Dyer
