Moominpappa at Sea

By Tove Jansson

"Leave" Moominvalley? Is it possible? Yes, even the Moomin family need a change of scenery sometimes, so they're off to live in a lighthouse on a tiny island. Here they find space to grow, and to do things they couldn't in their comfortable, cluttered valley home. As they discover their new home, the family also discover surprising, and wonderfully funny, new things about themselves.



    REVIEW QUOTES
“The Moomin books make for both splendid bedtime read-alouds and solitary savoring.”—"Wall Street Journal" “A sense of gentle mystery haunts this seventh book in the Moomintroll series. The Moomin family moves to an island where an abandoned lighthouse will not light, where frightened trees move of their own accord through the island’s rocky soil, and where we remember just how good a sandwich tastes in the middle of the night.”—"American Bookseller" “Enter a world of fantasy that has such a life of its own that the Moomin family’s island adventure will always be a part of you!”—"Daily Herald" “A lost treasure now rediscovered . . . A surrealist masterpiece.”—Neil Gaiman “Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal.
