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.
From Publishers Weekly
Newcomers to the long-established Moominvalley series might first glance at the simple, playfully illustrated appendix--"Moomin Gallery"--to acquaint themselves with the host of Moomin-species that adorn the plot. Once initiated, it's difficult not to be drawn in by the inventive adventures of Moomintroll and his family as they take refuge from a flood in a floating theater, get separated when Moomintroll spends a night on shore and are reunited at Moominpoppa's grand amateur drama. The Moominfolk face life's odd twists and occasional disasters with philosophical calm--an unusual and endearing perspective that will hook readers of all ages. Ages 7-10.
