Moomin And The Moonlight Adventure by Tove Jansson (Puffin, £10.99)
“Pee-hoo!” exclaims Moomintroll (as you do) when he wakes up ready for adventure. So what could the day have in store? By the time picnics have been packed, and dress codes agreed on – Snorkmaiden can’t decide whether to wear pink or blue – the sun has gone down, so the adventure begins under a starry sky. Is it too late to find treasure? With a simple narrative, it’s the quirky characters and charming illustrations that really shine.
