really liked it
Read in November, 2008

Three very curious little tales. The first, "The Secret of the Hattifatteners", was especially good. Moominpapa unexpectedly leaves home to go in quest of something he feels is missing from his comfortable life, something exemplified by the serious, dramatic lives of the sea-going Hattifatteners. It’s a story about a mid-life crisis, for kids! It would stand out even in an anthology of short stories for adults. I'll definitely be reading more.

Peribo The Moomintrolls are awesome. I loved them as a kid.

Stephen Theaker These Penguin Children's 60s are exposing me to loads of excellent stuff I missed first time around.
