What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Exploits of Moominpappa by Tove Jansson, read by Hugh Dennis.

If you haven't met a Moomin yet, you're in for the most magical fun!

'I decided to run away. There simply wasn't anything else to do.'

Here at last is Moominpappa's promised life story - from the days when he was abandoned in a newspaper parcel on the doorstep of a Moomin orphanage, to when he ran away to see the world and was lucky enough to meet Moominmamma.

I have long been a passionate Moomin appreciator - it's not just Tove Jansson's wonderfully strange fairytale world that so appeals but also her beautiful line work and exquisite sense of design
