Reviews

US Kirkus Review » "I believe many of my readers will thoughtfully lift their snout from the pages of this book every once in a while to exclaim: 'What a Moomin!' or: 'This indeed is life.'" That is Moominpappa's thoughtful evaluation of his memoirs, and their appearance will be accepted as a moomintous event by the devoted followers of Jansson's special brand of free-wheeling fantasy and commonsense wisdom (Tales from Moominvalley, 1964; Moominsummer Madness, 1961, etc.). Moominpappa chronicles here his adventures from the time that he ran away from the Home for Moomin Foundlings - his seafaring explorations aboard the good houseboat The Oshun Oxtra with Hodgkins, the Muddler, and the Joxter; and their conscientious efforts as Royal Outlaw Colonist. "All nice things are good for you," says Moominmamma, and The Exploits, whether you read them selectively or straight through, prove it. In retrospect, Moominpappa realizes that "I've really been a strapping Moomin in my day... And still going strong." Here, here! (Kirkus Reviews)
