A great flood wave threatens Moomin Valley!
When the Moomin family is flooded out of its home, the Moomins set about finding themselves a new one. And being resourceful little creatures, they soon find a very original one: a floating theatre!
Newcomers to the long-established Moominvalley series might first glance at the simple, playfully illustrated appendix--``Moomin Gallery''--to acquaint themselves with the host of Moomin-species that adorn the plot. Once initiated, it's difficult not to be drawn in by the inventive adventures of Moomintroll and his family as they take refuge from a flood in a floating theater, get separated when Moomintroll spends a night on shore and are reunited at Moominpoppa's grand amateur drama. The Moominfolk face life's odd twists and occasional disasters with philosophical calm--an unusual and endearing perspective that will hook readers of all ages. Ages 7-10.
