About the book

Join the Moomins on an ocean adventure in this stunning picture book based on Tove Jansson’s classic tales.

The Moomins, Sniff and Little My are setting off across the high seas in Moominpappa’s new boat. Along the way they will encounter a swarm of mischievous niblings, Edward the gigantic Booble, and a very cross Hemulen aunt. Will they make it back safely to Moominvalley . . . or could they be lost at sea?

This beautiful re-telling of Tove Jansson’s beloved story is perfect for Moomin fans of all ages. Combining the spirit of Jansson’s original warm and witty text with stunning illustrations of all her most beloved characters, Moomintroll Sets Sail is a heartwarming story of kindness, adventure and courage, as the Moomins come to realise that although adventure is exciting, home is always best.
