Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Another classic Moomin story reworked in full color, with a kid-proof but kid-friendly size, price, and format.

With a maid to help around the house, will the Moomins become respectable?

A housekeeping and mother-craft expert named Mrs. Fillyjonk moves in next door to the Moomins. Seeing the state of the Moomin house, she takes action, shaming them into hiring a maid. When Misabel the maid arrives, its immediately clear she needs a little cheering up, and since Mrs. Fillyjonk has mysteriously disappeared, the Moomins set about teaching Misabel how to enjoy herself. Life lessons and poignant reminders of the importance of simple pleasures abound in this classic tale from Tove Jansson.
