The year 2020 marks 75 years since Tove Jansson wrote her first story about the Moomins, “The Moomins and the Great Flood”. To celebrate the anniversary, Moomin Characters Ltd together with its partners is launching a one-year campaign to help the Baltic Sea.
“In the book Moominpappa at Sea, for example, the sea with all its different faces, from sunny and calm to raging and stormy, is one of the main focuses of the story”, she explains.
