Comet in Moominland
Written and illustrated by TOVE JANSSON
The Comet is on its way to Moomin Valley and this is the signal for Moomintroll and his friends to go adventuring. And what adventures they have! Encounters with crocodiles and eagles, their arrival at the Observatory, their journey home, and the arrival of the Comet . . . all are packed with excitement.
Moomintroll and the Snork Maiden, Sniff, the Muskrat and the Silk Monkey are only a few of the characters whom Tove Jansson has brought so entrancingly to life in this story and in her many delicious illustrations.
"...the new Moomin book . . . has fun, excitement and charming fantasy the drawings are as fresh and delight ful as the text.' Times Literary Supplement
'The greatest of all the disasters gives unity and drive to the best-told narrative in these books—Comet in Moominland. There is a sense of mounting tension and a marvellously dramatic climax in this remarkable story.' -Junior Bookshelf
