Bless the Moomins! I loved the TV series as a kid but I never read the source material until now. It’s cute, short and sweet, packed full of ideas and inspiration, crazy characters and wondrous situations.
I particularly liked the beginning, wandering through a gloomy forest, with tulips lighting the way. It’s described so well in so few words, I could picture myself there.
It gets a bit more fanciful after that, but I do like the image of a Moomin trying to climb a ladder, or sitting disconsolately on a tree branch waiting for rescue. Lovely stuff.
