The Moomins and the Great Flood è la prima storia sui Mumin di Tove Jansson, pubblicata per la prima volta in Finlandia nel 1945. Le straordinarie illustrazioni e il linguaggio di Tove Jansson porteranno il lettore in un viaggio avventuroso attraverso la Valle dei Mumin.
“What sort of thing are you?” asked the little creature.
“I’m a moomintroll,” answered Moomintroll,
who had had time to feel brave again. “And
this is my mother…”
And so, for the very first time, we meet the young Moomin, Moominmamma and Sniff as they search through forest and flood for long lost Moominpappa, last seen wandering with the Hattifatteners. Along the way, in a series of delightful adventures, they encounter Hemulens, stranded kittens and the blue-haired Tulippa.
