Moomin madness

We're almost finished reading a third Moomin book (Moominpappa's Memoirs) to C and I ordered a fourth book this evening. There are some slow spots, but at their best, the Moomintroll books are enchanting, and I really love the elegant and inventive line drawings.

If one wanted to go deep into Moomin madness, the sky's the limit. There's a variety of cartoon versions from across the globe (none readily accessible in the US, unfortunately), and I've got my eye on some adorable little Moomin mugs. If you really want to go whole hog, there's Moomin World in Finland (AKA Muumimaailma), which I have to admit I'd love to visit someday.
