Moominsummer Madness

Floating teacups, a prison break and a theatre cast adrift…it’s Moominsummer Madness!

One summer a grumbling volcano causes Moominvalley to flood, forcing the Moomins to leave their beloved home and find refuge on a floating theatre.  When this casts adrift, leaving Moomin, the Snorkmaiden and Little My marooned on land, Moominsummer Madness ensues. 

Will they all be reunited before the final curtain?

The book leads the reader on a journey to the flooded Moominvalley and the magical world of theatre, described as an infuriating but ultimately rewarding process.
