Moomins sleep through the winter – or they did until the year Moomintroll woke up …

, , ,

“The Moomins, in case you didn’t know, are kind, philosophical creatures with velvety fur and smooth round snouts, who live in a tall blue house in a beautiful woodland valley, beside the sea. They love the sunshine and sleep all through the winter months, waking up when spring arrives. Except one year when Moomintroll accidentally awakes and finds himself stranded and alone in a mysterious world blanketed with snow.” Sort of Books

Moominland Midwinter follows Moomin on his winterland adventure accompanied by the wise Too-ticky and fearless Little My, having woken too early from his winter slumber Moomin discovers a strange world covered in a blanket of white. It’s been snowing whilst the Moomins slept and as they hibernate over winter this is a site Moomintroll has never seen before.

Originally published in 1957 this and others in the series have been lovingly republished in hardback by Sort of Books. I love the Moomins in all their forms, these original versions are true collectors items, but not ones that you have to be prescious about and store up high on a shelf, they should be put out for all to enjoy, to be read and re read to spread to Moomin philosophy of kindness, love and adventure.

These books are recommended for a reading age of 7+ I think they could be read to a 5+ (or for your own entertainment to a newborn!) and confident readers age 8+ to read to themselves.
