Moominsummer Madness - by Tove Jansson
Tove Jansson created the first moomintroll book about 50 years ago. Now published in 32 languages, the adventures of Snufkin and Sniff in Moomin Valley delight children the world over. Moominsummer Madness is one of eight books about the endearing Moomins. When a flood sweeps through the valley, the Moomins must find a new house. And with typical Moomin good luck, one just happens to be floating by. It looks normal enough, but there are curtains where one wall should be, strange rows of lights, and other odd amenities. Then Moomintroll and the Snork Maiden disappear, and the family realize that the house may hold the answers to more than they ever dreamed. Written for Grades 4 and up. Paperback.
