Beautifully designed, lavishly produced and richly illustrated with captivating artwork and lively, witty writing, the nine stories in this collection are based on episodes of the animation series Moominvalley, which derives closely from the warm and whimsical Moomin world and characters created by the celebrated writer, artist and illustrator Tove Jansson.
Presented in chronological order, each story is set in the idyllic and peaceful valley where the round blue Moominhouse stands, and where everyone is welcome. The show is voiced by a stellar cast including Kate Winslet and Rosamund Pike, and the stories describe the adventures of nine-year-old Moomintroll, his parents, Moominmamma and Moominpappa and their eclectic and happy band of friends – Little My, Snufkin, Snorkmaiden, the hattifatteners and other famous characters from the classic stories.
The stories in this collection will delight Moomin fans of all ages. In one story Moomintroll sails to the mysterious Hattifattener island and in another, he finds a tiny dragon. The Moomins temporarily move house, Snufkin composes a new spring tune and Moomintroll encounters the mysterious Groke.
Surprising things happen every day in Moominvalley. Luckily the Moomin family and their friends embrace the unexpected with their characteristic humour, kindness and charm.
