Finn Family Moomintroll - Tove Jansson. My other favourite moomin book. All the adventures that ensue the summer Moomintroll and his friends find the magical Hobgoblin's hat.

Finn Family Moomintroll - I love the moomins and I think I would have to say that this book is my favourite. What with adventures with hobgoblins magical hats and evil hattyfatteners I just couldn't put it down!

Simply including 'exploits' in the title of a children's book earns my undying admiration, but Tove Jansson somehow managed to combine Scandinavian homely charm with existential terror. Don't believe me? Try this on your child as bedtime reading. And there are buttons and other sewing references!  ;)
