Praise For…

"It's more than forty years since Jansson's Moomintrolls first appeared. I found the writing and invention as appealing as ever. She has a thistledown touch."--Michele Landsberg, The Washington Post Book World

"The adventures of the easygoing Moomintrolls have all the crispness and tart surprise of a lingonberry, thanks to Jansson's ineffably light touch, her uncanny sensitivity to universal childhood emotions, and her gift for terse, naturalistic dialogue."--Entertainment Weekly

"This book in Jansson's series about the Moomins and their friends-small, indescribable Scandinavian creatures-tells of their adventures in trying to save themselves from a comet. A gentle, offbeat fantasy." --The Horn Book
