Summary

If you haven't met a Moomin yet, you're in for the most magical fun! The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Tove Jansson's endearing classic, Tales from Moominvalley, read with warmth (and some lively character voices) by the comedian Hugh Dennis. If you found a tiny golden dragon with green paws, would you know what to do with it? Well, Moomintroll thinks he knows what to do. But when he takes his new-found pet home, things don't quite work out as planned! Here is a delightful collection of stories in which Moomintroll meets some new characters such as the Fillyjonk and the Hattifatteners, as well as sharing adventures with old friends, namely Snufkin and Little My.

Critic reviews

“The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.” ( Wall Street Journal)
“A lost treasure now rediscovered . . . A surrealist masterpiece.” (Neil Gaiman)
“Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal." (Philip Pullman)

Loving these books.<br />

This is the second Tales from Moomin Valley I've bought and will be buying another. Very well read and enduring. Hugh is a great narrator and does good justice to the written books.

Voices

I didn't like the voices of Little My and Sniff - too screechy and hurt my ears.
