Now that autumn is turning into winter, a group of unlikely friends―including the Fillyjonk, the Hemulen, and Toft―are waiting in Moominvalley to see the Moomins, for winter doesn't seem right without them. But the Moomins are not at home. So all the visitors settle down to await their return, and oddly enough find themselves warming up to their new life together. For Moominvalley is Moominvalley still, even without the Moomins in it.

Tove Jansson is undoubtedly one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been. She has the extraordinary gift of writing books that are very clearly for children, but can also be enjoyed when the child, like me, is over sixty and can still find new pleasures with the insights that come from adulthood.

Other books by Tove Jansson. The exploits of moominpappa. Moominland midwinter. Toft generally began by describing the happy Moomin-valley. He went slowly down the slopes where the dark pines and the pale birch-trees grew. He tried to describe to himself what it felt like when the valley opened out into a wild green garden lit by sunshine, with green leaves waving in the summer breeze, the green grass all round him with patches of sunlight in it, and the sound of bees, and everything smelling so nice, and he walked on slowly until he heard the sound.

But the Moomin family. It was about time that she went to see Moominmamma. In August, somewhere in Moominvalley, he had hit upon five bars which would undoubtedly provide a marvellous beginning for a tune. You have to decide these things when you’re in a certain mood, and quickly, too, before the mood vanishes. They had come completely naturally as notes do when they have been left in peace. Now the time had come to take them out again and let them become a song about rain.

It was a very long way there and Toft's legs were short. Everywhere there were deep pools and swamps and great trees that had fallen down with age or been blown over by a storm. ed huge lumps of earth into the air and underneath them pools of black water glistened. Toft walked round them, he walked round every single swamp and every single pool and didn't get lost once. He felt very happy because he knew exactly what he wanted. The forest smelt good, even better than the Hemulen's boat. The Hemulen himself smelt of old paper and worry.

Silly Dog
If you grew up with the Moomintrolls just as I did, you'll probably be just as happy as I was to know that the books are not only available but still in print and you can order brand new unblemished copies. If you didn't grow up with the Moomintroll books, it's never too late to learn to love them or teach the kids in your life to do so. To the uninitiated, it's hard to explain what makes the Moomintrolls so great. Sometimes there are great adventures in their tales but often they are distinguished from other so-called children's literature by the quiet, philosophical bent of much of the text. Either way they're gems not to be missed. (NOTE: when I say "so-called children's literature" it's not because I disdain children's literature but rather that I disdain the idea that it's just for children. A Wrinkle in Time, the Moomintroll books, The Phantom Tollbooth, these are great books and they remain worth reading at any age.)
Yramede
Wonderful magic as in all Moomin books. Personality archetypes and life wisdom, this time with the Moomin family in hibernation and the other characters center stage. What is family, and how do we deal with longing? Tove Jansson at her best.
Alsalar
4th book of the series. Great for your pre-teens, especially learning to read on their own.
Tetaian
Just a wonderful series. My daughter and I are working our way through the whole collection. I think I'll be even more sorry than my daughter when we're finished.
Taur
Superb bedtime story with plot lines that can be enjoyed or contemplated depending on your mood.
If in doubt have a look on YouTube to see if you want to read this story. I love the series.
Yanki
My son is in love with these books. He's four and they hold his attention and mine.
Helldor
I like this English translation. Reminds of Winnie the Pooh. And of course I love the stories! Great to read to/with your 9-12 year old!
