I was hoping to find out what I was missing by reading about the Moomins in this different format, but I still don't really appreciate them. Sorry. ( )

Liked it, didn't love it. The art design was amazing . . . the translation of the original text to English had a bit of clunk to it. I imagine it's like reading Dr. Seuss translated into French. ( )

This book is wonderful! It has a Dr. Seuss feel to it with entertaining and complex rhymes and made-up words that never confuse the reader. In this book, Little My is lost and her sister, Mymble, and an elephant, Moomin, that happens to cross her path set out on a quest to find Little My.

The illustrations in this book are fabulous. The drawings themselves are wonderful but each page has a cut-out that gives the reader a very intentional peek into what’s coming next.
At the end of each page, the author invites the reader to predict and question by telling you that in the next minutes, second, moment, etc something is going to happen. I think would be a fabulous book to model with students how readers make predictions. Predicting cannot be avoided with book. Everything about it beckons you to figure out what is going happen.

Gloriously inventive cutout book with a blank verse fantasy quest in Moominland. ( )

One of the best picture books, ever! The pages are cleverly cut so glimpses of what is to come, and what has passed, is shown the reader. Apart from that it's a pretty charming story of the perils Moomin goes through when he has bought his Mum some milk. ( )
