This is one of my favorite board books. Like other Moomin picture books, the paintings are simple, yet gorgeous. The objects to count are interesting and require you to pay attention! They weave together to tell the tale of a Moomin day. May sound crazy, but I much preferred it to the Moomin Book of Words.
I like it for the numbers, but it's just not the interesting for me.
I was asked to read bedtime stories to a friend’s child and this was the book he selected. The jury is still out on the Moomins. The girl Snark Maiden with the yellow hair and ankle bangle was too weird to process. I think that I will come to like these whimsical characters in time.
I know this character is loved in Finland, but I really didn't have any interest in this book.

Tove Jansson was born and died in Helsinki, Finland. As a Finnish citizen whose mother tongue was Swedish, she was part of the Swedish-speaking Finns minority. Thus, all her books were originally written in Swedish.

Although known first and foremost as an author, Tove Jansson considered her careers as author and painter to be of equal importance.

Tove Jansson wrote and illustrated her first Moomin
