Haven't you ever wanted to act on the stage ? or wanted to write a play, and probably tried, too ? What happens when Moominpappa is persuaded to try his hand at a new drama, called The Lion's Brides, provides one of the many incidents in these further entrancing adventures of Moomintroll and his friends.
The author now tells of what befell the Moomin family following a tidal wave in their Valley, and of the many new friends they make before returning safely home again. In fact all, from Moominpappa to Little My, are off adventuring into the unknown again, with that readiness to accept everything that happens as for the best, which is one of their most endearing characteristics.
That touch of the magic which animates these fantastical creatures also introduces new faces in Whomper, Misabel and the little Woodies; to say nothing of the immense presence of Emma the stage rat and custodian. Then there are the Fillyjonk, the Hemulen and his little cousin, and not least the Park Keeper, that great enemy of Snufkin, Moomintroll's special friend. But these are enough to ensure more fascination for readers of all ages, told in words and pictures which defy description— you must see for yourself.
"....it bubbles with fun, freshness and inconsequential high spirits.' -The Observer
