WITH MOOMINVALLEY UNDERWATER, WILL MOOMIN’S ROMANTIC TENDENCIES GET HIM IN TROUBLE?

Moominvalley is flooded, so Snorkmaiden and Moomin head out to rescue anyone stranded in the deluge. They bring home Miss La Goona, the leading lady of the visiting circus, who turns out to be quite a demanding houseguest. Nonetheless, Moomin, having read a few too many romantic novels, falls head over heels in love with her, and chaos ensues. Tove Jansson’s flawless cartooning is brought to life in a whole new way within these pages. A delight for the whole family!

Praise for Moomin Falls In Love

To know the Moomins was to know Tove [Jansson]. She poured her wit, dreams and fears into the characters.

The Economist

[Tove Jansson's Moomins feature) scratchy, pen-and-ink sketches and [an] atmosphere of beneficence ... [a] mix of disaster and gentle naïveté.

We might recommend for 6 or 7 years and up, but it varies largely. The interpersonal and social tensions in the themes are played out and resolved in a medium that we find approachable even for young children, and our children took a keen interest already at ~4 years old in the Moomin stories, although we wouldn't normally recommend them so early. We would paraphrase a little certainly when reading aloud.
