If you haven't met a Moomin yet, you're in for the most magical fun! The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Tove Jansson's endearing classic, Finn Family Moomintroll, read with warmth (and some lively character voices) by the comedian Hugh Dennis. Moomintroll is cheerful and chubby and lives in the magical Moominvalley with his mother, Moominmamma, his father, Moominpappa and all of their friends. Throughout the winter the Moomins hibernate, but before they go to sleep they fill their tummies full of pineneedles. In spring they wake up, ready for their fun-filled summer adventures. This is the story in which Moomintroll finds a big hat - a magical Hobgoblin hat, no less…

"As wonderful a story as it was when I was a kid"
Really enjoyed listening to this with my children, they were as enthralled as I was back then, truelly marvellous.
"A happy retreat to the valley of the moomins"
I love this book. It takes me back to my childhood and feels like a tonic.
Hugh Dennis is perfect as the narrator. Lovely production and sends my seven year old off to sleep beautifully.
