A few weeks ago, I was scurrying through the foyer of my local library. As I went past the little 2nd-hand bookstore (located in the aforementioned foyer), my eye was caught by this book. I quickly scooped it up, handed over my $2 and marched triumphantly out the library doors bearing my prize. A beautiful Moomin picture-book? For $2!
Moomin website. It's a delightful place to explore. I especially loved the stop-motion animation clip from a Moomin movie made in the early 80's (to find the clip, go to "Moomins" on the menu bar across the top, then click on "Films and Music.")
