A little more melancholy, a little less plot-driven than Comet in Moominland. Lovely all the same. ( )

Amazing how memories persist. I had strong recollections of some of the scenes of "Comet in Moominland," but more or less had drawn a blank on this one -- but then certain memories started to return: the barometer reading zero, christening the boat, the found figurehead, the ruby, and Sniff's magnificent wish. What a lovely book. Jacob adored it. ( )

My daughter loved this so much that she picked it out to give to friends for their kids' birthdays.

Gender: The gender roles are somewhat dated, unfortunately. But with a little discussion, that can be handled, I think, and the imaginativeness and fun of this series can't be beaten. ( )

A delightful and fun story by Jansson - one of the most accessible of her Moomintroll stories to start with in English. ( )
