THE DEBUT APPEARANCE OF EVERYONE’S FAVORITE PEST, LITTLE MY!

After Mymble’s family comes to visit the Moomins, her littlest and most badly behaved sister, Little My, is left behind. She promises to behave if she is given Moomin’s bedroom; Moomin, tired of being forced out of his room, decides to build a house where all the rooms will belong to him. With Little My helping out, things are sure to go awry, but in the end, Moomin’s house-building misadventures teach him the value of a home.

Praise for Moomin Builds A House

To know the Moomins was to know Tove [Jansson]. She poured her wit, dreams and fears into the characters.

The Economist

[Tove Jansson's Moomins feature) scratchy, pen-and-ink sketches and [an] atmosphere of beneficence ... [a] mix of disaster and gentle naïveté.

We might recommend for 6 or 7 years and up, but it varies largely. The interpersonal and social tensions in the themes are played out and resolved in a medium that we find approachable even for young children, and our children took a keen interest already at ~4 years old in the Moomin stories, although we wouldn't normally recommend them so early. We would paraphrase a little certainly when reading aloud.
