'The Seven Squat Bears are a hardworking bunch. Panic ensues, one day when they come home from a long day working in the mines to find a giantess sleeping on their beds... all of their beds! But one enterprising bear decides that the solution to their problem is a prince! But do they need to set off in search of a slaying-prince? Or a princess-marrying prince? Or Both?'

JUN101263 Comet in Moominland sc, 192pg $6.99
JUN101264 Finn Family Moomintroll sc, 176pg $6.99
JUN101265 Moominpapa's Memoirs sc, 176pg $6.99
JUN101266 Moominsummer Madness sc, 176pg $6.99
Four books in Tove Jansson's Moomintroll series, with illustrations by the author. The third was previously published as *Exploits of Moominpapa*. Juvies again, but they have a tang of their own and I don't hesitate to suggest you try one. My favorite is the last one, *Moominpapa at Sea*; I trust they'll get to that in time.
