Comet in Moominland

This is the story from my childhood, because i grew up watching Russian cartoons about Moomins'life. This book is one the several in the series about a life of Moomins. In this book, Moomin Troll and his friends are looking for some scientists to find out about the dangerous comet approaching the Earth. The comet will certainly smash the Earth and Moomin Troll, Sniff and Snusmumrik try to warn their friends and relatives about this danger. In Tove Jansson's Moomin World an each character has some strange habits/preferences and something funny to share. Sniff loves gems, Hemul collects stamps, Monkey counts pearls and every time get a different result etc.
The book is funny, filled with peculiar characters, it is certainly memorable. Jansson's imagination reminded me of some of Roald Dahl's "wildly crazy" books that kids adore.Recommended to kids who are bored and to adults with ADHD.
