Book Corner - Finn Family Moomintroll

Lucy Mangan brought her excellent "building a brilliant children's library" feature to a close yesterday by selecting one of Tove Jansson's Moomintroll titles:


The Moomin books (there are nine in all) are full of subtle humour, wisdom, compassion and melancholy and the attraction they held for me as a child has only grown with the years. Moominland and its methodical inhabitants form an oasis of calm and clarity in a world that frequently threatens to overwhelm us. Just as the Moomins are always ready to curl up in a warm patch and snuggle down for a restorative snooze, so too should we all, children and adults, with their still, sweet stories. LUCY MANGAN
