"It's more than forty years since Jansson's Moomintrolls first appeared. I found the writing and invention as appealing as ever. She has a thistledown touch." —Michele Landsberg, The Washington Post Book World

"The adventures of the easygoing Moomintrolls have all the crispness and tart surprise of a lingonberry, thanks to Jansson's ineffably light touch, her uncanny sensitivity to universal childhood emotions, and her gift for terse, naturalistic dialogue." —Entertainment Weekly

I thought this book was really magical and funny. I always wondered when I was reading if the comet might collide with earth and change the story, but everything ends up alright!
