Subject: BS: Moomin, Mymble, and Little My
Author Tove Jansson wrote these books,
and in my childhood they were available in English translation.
Because a recent adaptation was aired in the UK,
there is a recent article in The Guardian: Mad for Moomins.

I remember one book that was all about
getting fresh milk,
and there were all these peril and pitfalls getting to
where the milk was.
By the time the trio got there, all in one piece,
the milk had curdled.

The UK/Finnish collaboration this year
is animated (possibly 3-D)
and the voices are done by professional actors.
The English language version
has a Who's-Who of UK actors.

Anybody else grow up with the Moomins?
