When a flood sweeps through the valley, the Moomins must find a new house. And with typical Moomin good luck, one just happens to be floating by. It looks normal enough, but there are curtains where one wall should be, strange rows of lights, and other odd amenities. Then Moomintroll and the Snork Maiden disappear, and the family realize that the house may hold the answers to more than they ever dreamed.
"The Moominfolk face life's odd twists and occasional disasters with philosophical calm—an unusual and endearing perspective that will hook readers of all ages." —Publishers Weekly
"Jansson's invention and philosophy of life remain as appealing as ever." —The Horn Book
