Moomins on the Riviera
Tove Jansson’s universally loved Finnish cartoon creatures take a new trip.
In search of new adventures of their own, the Moomins, Snorkmaiden and Little My set sail for the sunny Riviera, where, after a journey fraught with menacing storms and desert island dangers, Snorkmaiden enjoys the attentions of a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy’s sting is the most painful of all.
Meanwhile Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts his new pal’s pretensions – while an exasperated Moominmamma retires to the relative calm of their trusty old boat and waits for her family to come to their senses.
Beautifully hand-drawn and sweetly charming, this new feature celebrates Jansson’s original comic strips and highlights her characters’ enduring appeal.
