Adventures in Moominvalley

Written by Amanda Li

Adventures in Moominvalley Synopsis

Join Moomintroll, his family and their friends in beautiful Moominvalley - where everyone is welcome. Surprising things happen every day in Moominvalley - luckily the Moomin family and their friends embrace the unexpected with their characteristic humour, kindness and charm. This lavish gift book contains nine exciting adventure stories - all closely based on 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 taken from an animation episode and set in the idyllic and peaceful valley where the round blue Moominhouse stands, and where everyone is welcome. 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.
