My children have listened to the Moonmins before, so we though we knew what we were letting ourselves in for. I bought this as part of a winter suite (as you do), full of Christmassy wintery stories to listen to for December.
This one stood out as it was very different. It has a strange melancholy feel to it. Moonmin Troll accidentally wakes out of hibernation and is really quite lonely for a while. A squirrel dies from looking at the beautiful Winter Lady. There is much talk about creatures who are shy or un-loved who only come out in the winter as there is no-one around.
My boys (aged 5 & 7) didn't ask me to turn it off, but they were a little perplexed. My 5 year old said it wasn't nice to have people die on the way to school, although he hasn't had nightmares or anything since.
Hence the 3 star rating. Possibly better for age 6 and over I'd say, or anyone who wants to create a real atmosphere of the slightly scary, otherworldly nature of a really cold artic winter.
