Thank you so much for reblogging, Helen 🙂
You’re very welcome, Sue!
I’ve not heard of this book. The names (Moomintroll, Snorkmaiden, Groke) are fantastical, and the illustrations just gorgeous! My son wrote a novel a few years’ ago, ‘Two Dogs and a City of Cats’, and came up with glorious names for his characters, like ‘Snickelfrod’ and ‘Selt’. I just love names like that!
Oh Louise, please see if you can find a copy of one of the Moomin books – they are the most charming read, both for adults and children. Moomins are quite big over here, you can get all sorts of memorabilia – I had the books as a child and have passed them on to my daughter because they are so wonderful.
