it was amazing

I love the Moomins and I love Tove Jansson. They are slightly unsettling books, with strange characters and happenings. Moomintroll, Sniff and Snufkin find the Hobgoblin's magical hat. Things put inside the hat change, causing bizarre happenings. Two weird little characters, Thingummy and Bob, turn up with a ruby that they have stolen from the sinister Groke. They are put on trial, then the Hobgoblin turns up looking for his hat.

I think that these books are wonderful. They provoke a lot of discussion, particularly about the changes in the seasons, emotions, fears and change.

Robert Collins I read this book a few years ago and thought it was brilliant.

Alison I love the Moomintroll books. Moomintroll MIdwinter is also wonderful: they are quite mysterious and strange books.
