The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-loved Moomintroll wakes up excitedly on his birthday but, when he tries to show all his friends his wonderful present, they just don’t seem to be interested…Poor Moomin! But, when there is a ring at the door, Moomin finds that his friends haven’t forgotten him after all! A wonderful picture book that introduces the world famous Moomins to young readers.
Katy Guest, literary editor for The Independent on Sunday on the Moomin books: "A fantasy series for small children that introduces bigger ones to ideas of adventure, dealing with fear, understanding character and tolerating difference."
Moomin and the Birthday Button by Tove Jansson
The Moomin family and their friends are the delightful creation of Tove Jansson, and are full of a particular humour and magic that has enchanted generations of children and adults alike. Using the author's original characters and artwork, Moomin and the Birthday Button is part of a stunning new range of children's titles launching in the year of the Moomins' 65th anniversary celebrations. In this, the first of a new series of picture books, Moomintroll wakes up full of excitement. It's his birthday! But when it appears that his friends have forgotten all about his special day, Moomintroll is very upset. Even Moominmamma finds it hard to comfort him! Then there's a knock at the door ...Who can it be, and what will happen next?
