Description
As he recuperates from a bad cold, Moominpappa decides it's the perfect time to write about his youthful life of adventure and intrigue, and to ponder the Experiences that have made him the remarkable Moomin he is. Little Moomintroll, Snufkin, and Sniff listen intently to his memoir, learning of his triumphs, his travails, and his momentous meetings with the Joxter, the Muddler, the Mymble, and other fantastic creatures. Originally published in 1950 as The Exploits of Moominpappa and revised in 1968, this book is "a felicitous introduction for newcomers to the Moomin tales" (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books). Youngsters in Northern Europe know all about the Moomins, created in the 1940s by Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Tove Jansson, and her adorably plump little trolls have now entertained kids up to 12 (and more than a few grownups) in almost every country on earth. Looking rather like a family of small, furry hippopotami in Jansson's delightful ink drawings, the Moomins and their friends live in a big house in Moominvalley, where their good humor and imagination serve them well in adventures ranging from the slapstick to the quietly profound.

"Tove Jansson is undoubtedly one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been. She has the extraordinary gift of writing books that are very clearly for children, but can also be enjoyed when the child, like me, is over 60 and can still find new pleasures with the insights that come from adulthood."—Terry Pratchett
