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
They seem to grow in wisdom and delight every time I read them... a perfect marriage of word and picture
