The Moomins and the Great Flood by [Tove Jansson](http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/45230.thumbnail.jpg "The Moomins and the Great Flood The Moomins and the Great Flood by Tove Jansson")
My rating: ★★★☆☆
The first of the Moomin books. It reads a bit clunky but I found it charming nonetheless. It introduces the main characters of books, their house and why they live in the valley. Promising enough to read the other books too. Wouldn't recommend it as the first Moomin book to read. Book 3 (Finn Family Moomintroll) would probably work better as an introduction.
