Great pick for predictive reading!
The Book about Moomin. Mymble, and Little My
Tove Jansson
English translation by Sophie Hannah
The Moomintroll, the Gaffsie, the Hemulen, the Fillywonk, and, course, Little My and Mymble. Poor little Moomin troll is trying to take a pail of milk home. But one things leads to another and… Ha! I know what you’re thinking. What are these things? Why should I care? These characters make up the world of Tove Jansson, the brilliant Swedish writer for children. Her books are clever, funny, and not at all scary, even though she peoples them with odd creatures. This book has cutouts that encourage kids to guess what happens next in the story. Take a look at the cover. It’s a hint of the fun that waits within.
