Moominsummer Madness

Tove Jansson, Author, Tove Jansson, Illustrator, Thomas Warburton, Translator Farrar Straus Giroux $13.95 (176p) ISBN 978-0-374-35039-0
Newcomers to the long-established Moominvalley series might first glance at the simple, playfully illustrated appendix--``Moomin Gallery''--to acquaint themselves with the host of Moomin-species that adorn the plot. Once initiated, it's difficult not to be drawn in by the inventive adventures of Moomintroll and his family as they take refuge from a flood in a floating theater, get separated when Moomintroll spends a night on shore and are reunited at Moominpoppa's grand amateur drama. The Moominfolk face life's odd twists and occasional disasters with philosophical calm--an unusual and endearing perspective that will hook readers of all ages. Ages 7-10. (May)
