Late November, several of the moomin family‘s friends, Snirfkin, the Hemulen and Fillyfjonk, decide to visit them. Only finding the moomin family not at home, but their friends decide to stay.

This is an old library copy with the old library card for borrowing in the back. It was first borrowed in 1972.

#1970 #192025
2nd book for #WinterReadaton and #Adventathon

Andrew65 This brings back memories. 🎄🎄🎄 4d
AnneCecilie @Andrew65 For me too. I watched the cartoons in the 90s. But it was a little weird reading a moomin book without the moomins. This was also the first moomin book I read by Jansson. 4d
Librarybelle Oh! I love finding old library cards in books! 4d

Andrew65 @AnneCecilie I have a vague memory of picture books but would need to research to make sure I didn‘t make that up. Remember the cartoons well. 4d
Libby1 I just read this book last week too! One thing I read compared it to Waiting for Godot in Moominvalley. 4d

Christmas Comes to Moominvalley | Tove Jansson, Cecilia Davidsson, Alex Haridi

Based on one of Tove Jansson‘s stories, this is a picture book for children.

The moomins are in hibernation when one hemulen wakes them up in panic because Christmas is coming. Of course the moomins start preparing for this catastrophe.

3rd book for #NovelNovember @Andrew65

Andrew65 Love the Moomins! 1w

“A new day can always bring you anything if you have no objection to it.”

The Moomins bring such joy!

Hello, Littens!

Have a great day.

I‘m starting mine with The Exploits of Moominpappa before work.

How about you?

Bookwomble I started with two cheese on crumpets, scrolling Litsy and reading about the new Tolkien book due in November. It's a bank holiday in England, so having a slow start to the day 😌 3mo
Libby1 Hi, @Bookwomble ! It‘s a bank holiday here in Northern Ireland as well, but I‘m working. Next stop Waterstones! I‘ll try not to buy anything today. 🙄 3mo
TrishB I‘m hoping for a day of reading 😁 3mo

I'm feeling a little squiffy after making us afternoon mojitos, so I've made an Earl Grey mini afternoon tea to sober up!
Cut the crusts off the cream cheese and cucumber sandwich to show how posh I am; ate the crusts separately to prove how common I am 😄 I feel Moominpappa would understand!

TrishB What a great pic ♥️ 5mo
rwmg I've never understood why cutting the crusts off is posh. The crusts are best bits 5mo
Bookwomble @rwmg Perhaps you're as common as me then, Robert! 😄 I've always assumed the poshness of de-crusted sandwiches was so that Dowager Lady Windermere didn't have to look vulgar chewing so much. I agree with you, crusts are the best bit 😋 5mo
