Jasmine (jasmineworth) | 2 comments I read this book when I was a child, and loved it. I can not remember the name of it, and I can only remember little bits of the plot. Something about little creatures that lived on an island, I feel like they had the word "moon" in their names...? It had small ink illustrations of little creature that almost looked like hippos that walked upright, they were not human. Vague, I know, but I figured Id give it a shot.

Jackie "the Librarian" | 219 comments You are looking for Tove Jansson's books with the Moomins. There are several titles:
Finn Family Moomintroll
Moominland Winter
Moominpappa at Sea
Moominsummer Madness
and more!
