Synopsis

A rerelease of the classic comic in honor of the centenary of Tove Jansson’s birth

As springtime dawns in Moominvalley and the first northern crocus opens, Moominpappa and Snorkmaiden, glamorized by the prospects of movie stars and gambling, insist the whole family take a trip down to the Riviera. Reluctantly Moomin and Moominmamma agree to go along, and the Moomins set off on a grand adventure, complete with butlers, luxury shops, indoor swimming pools, and duels at dawn. With their innocent curiosity about everything, the Moomins prove the perfect foil for the cynical, world-weary residents of the Riviera.
     Tove Jansson’s Moomin on the Riviera is a classic Moomin story reworked in full color, with a kid-friendly size, price, and format. A delight for the whole family!
