How can it be that unlike in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe the Moomin sagas never caught on in the United States Finnish author Tove Jansson s tales of the white hippo like Moomintroll and his parents Moominmamma and Moominpappa would delight children and parents alike the latter probably enjoying them even as adults can get the sly humor I simply don t understand how Moominmania could possibly have bypassed the United States when it swept through Europe Comet in Moominland the second in the series follows Moomintroll his rodent like friend the timid Sniff and yet another pal the clever tramp Snufkin as they investigate the trajectory of a comet bound for Earth Imagine their alarm when after many adventures they arrive at the Lonely Mountains and find out from the astronomers there that the comet will land in just four days timeThe band race back to Moominvalley to save the day and consult Moominmamma as wise children do With this gentle story the outcome s never in doubt but Comet in Moominland never descends to the saccharine far from it I freuently laughed out loud at some of the snarky passages especially involving Sniff s vying for credit and the young Moomintroll s bashful crush on the pretty Snork maidenI m going to try to read the entire series Why should childhood be wasted only on the young

Re read 02042020No change in rating15062014Like so many Finnish children of a certain generation I grew up watching the Moomins tv series there are still reruns every once in a while and the magic has never faded and visited Moomin World Now to honor Tove Jansson s centenary I started a project of reading all her Moomin books Maybe the rest of her body of work as well if I have the time or enthusiasmWhen the 1992 animated movie premiered in Finland my mom took me to see it The part where Muskrat sits on the cake was funny but mostly the oppressive mood stayed with me I don t remember the happy ending but I do remember the part where creatures big and small were hurrying away from Moominvalley with all their possessions the frantic search for the kitten and the red sky that reminded of the impending doomThe book is very similar to the movie with minor differences the change of the chump Silk Monkey into a kitten worked better in my opinion and has echoes of nuclear explosions and their scorching power to destroy everything Everyone in the valley has their way of surviving in the middle of an increasing dread of an uncertain future Moominmamma just keeps going with her chores and bakes a cake but Moomintroll and Sniff travel to the Observatory of the Lonely Mountains to find out about the approaching comet On their journey they meet other familiar characters who join the Moomin familyThe contrast between them all works great Sniff is a selfish whiner the fickle Snork Maiden is vain and loves beautiful things and the practical Snork is obsessed about details and having meetings about everything There s a little of them in all of us Snufkin is my favorite and here we meet him for the first time He sees beauty even in the starkest of sceneries and proves to be a great asset to the group with his experience in adventures It was a funny little path winding here and there dashing off in different directions and sometimes even tying a knot in itself from sheer joy You don t get tired of a path like that and I m not sure that it doesn t get you home uicker in the end
