Moominsummer Madness by Tove Jansson
Book DescriptionIt all began with a hot day in June, and a volcano dropping black ash on Moominmamma's washing. Then a crack appeared in the ground, and Moomintroll's toothbrush slipped straight down into the dark and yawning earth. Then a great flood wave came crashing through Moomin Valley. And that was why the Moomins found themselves a new home, and why they all had so many strange adventures, ones that were odd even by Moomin standards...

US Kirkus Review » The odd adventures of an even odder group of make-believe characters take them through a tidal wave to the strangest house imaginable with everything made of paper, wood or plaster. They soon discover the house is a theater and they proceed with typical misadventures to write and stage a play. Optimism always reigns as Moominpapa, Moominmama, the Snork Maiden, Little My, Misabel and a host of others engage in a labyrinth of whimsy. The wit here and there may be a bit sophisticated for the age level, but the story loaded with situation will appeal to those with a preference for intricate fancy. (Kirkus Reviews)
