This is a non-fiction book of quotes and art from the Moomin series of books. It's divided into 5 chapters of philosophical ideas. Less than 50 pages, it's a quick read. It's more beneficial to those who are already familiar with the series and stories, otherwise many of the quotes without context come across as not very philosophical or humorous at all. Recommended for serious fans only.

When it comes to fathers, they are just amazing in knowing what they should do or say in the perfect time, no wonder why we can sense a lot of things in his words through the book. You may find some strange things in his words but reading his lines again may make them reasonable.
