First published in 1952, the late Jansson's first picture book to feature the Moomins returns with its droll, rhyming text and singular characters intact. Bringing home a thermos of milk, Moomintroll, who resembles a small, white hippopotamus, meets Mymble, searching for her lost sister, along with other creatures. Throughout, die-cuts create a spooky, layered effect, offering a tantalizing peek at what's to come. Readers are repeatedly asked what might occur next in the story, drawing them in further. From the bold colors and oddball creatures to expressive variations in font and inventive die-cuts, the book remains a kid-friendly package and a wonderfully weird vision. All ages. (Nov.)
