Even the Moomin family need a change of scenery sometimes, so they're off to live in a lighthouse on a tiny island. As Pappa, Mamma, Moomintroll, Little My, and the icy Groke discover their new home—facing wind, wave, and weather of all sorts—they also discover surprising, and surprisingly funny, things about themselves.
"Jansson's simple language, comic gift and down-to-earth relation of odd events all remind one of Milne." —Alison Lurie, The New York Review of Books
"The Moomins originated in Finland, found their way to England, and have now, happily, crossed the Atlantic. One couldn't ask for more engaging citizens." —The Christian Science Monitor
