Last night, we finished reading Moominland Midwinter. I don’t know why I jumped from Comet to this one, but it just felt right for the moment. After spending months reading it a little bit several nights a week, we have finally finished.
I love the growing confidence of Moomintroll over the course of the winter, I love Too-ticky and Little My. I even love getting to know the Groke a bit better. One of the illustrations that has stayed with me from childhood is the snow horse and the eerie feeling of waiting for the Great Cold. We will probably take a break from the Moomins, but rest assured we will return to this most wonderful of imaginary lands.
