Moominsummer Madness (Paperback)Tove Jansson (author)
- 5+ in stock
Tove Jansson’s mercurial creations were always destined to embrace the theatrical life and, in Moominsummer Madness, a floating theatre plays a key part in their wonderfully wistful and bizarre story. The fourth installment in the Moomin saga is every bit as charming, surreal and wise as its predecessors.
Soon to be MOOMINVALLEY, a MAJOR ANIMATED SERIES on SKY ONE starring Taron Egerton and Rosamund Pike!
It all began with a hot day in June, and a volcano dropping black ash on Moominmamma's washing.
Then a crack appeared in the ground, and Moomintroll's toothbrush slipped straight down into the dark and yawning earth.
Then a great flood wave came crashing through Moomin Valley.
And that was why the Moomins found themselves a new home, and why they all had so many strange adventures, ones that were odd even by Moomin standards. . .
