Being a fan of Moomin and the rest I was delighted to find this spooky little picture book over at one of my libraries. Yes, it is even in English which made me smile. I really should see if they have more picture books of Moomin because I really enjoyed reading this one.
In this one the Moomin and their friends go to lighthouse on Lonely Island (love that name). It should be a wonderful and adventurous vacation but instead we see that Moomintroll is afraid to sleep, even with a light on. There is a ghost in his room (which I found just sad/funny-looking rather than scary) and he doesn’t dare to sleep. Oh, and the bed is also just not nearly right, to which I could relate as I have had some uncomfortable or just not right beds while away. Since that couldn’t be solved, I hope that Moomintroll would find a solution for the ghost problem. Or someone else. Because this is a vacation for adventure and one shouldn’t be afraid the whole day.
So, I absolutely loved the idea that Tooticky and Snorkmaiden came up with. That is a smart idea! I had fun seeing the plan set in motion and I was definitely cheering for Moomintroll. That is all I will say, you will have to read to see what will happen.
The art, I really liked it!
All in all, I am so glad I picked it up. Perfect for my Halloween/Spooktober reading.
