<p>Get shipwrecked with Moomin in the eighth volume of the beloved Moomin hardcover series</p>
Lars Jansson returns with the eighth volume of the classic Moomin hardcover comic series, and the whole gang is back in action. Sniff is causing trouble with another of his get-rich-quick schemes, Snorkmaiden falls in love with the inspector's bad boy nephew, and Moominmamma is offering up plum cake to whosoever should need it. As always, the experiences of the Moomin family are poignant, melancholy, and strangely wise, with just a dash of drolly funny and a pinch of slapstick. Without a doubt, Lars Jansson's Moomin Book Eight is a treat for the whole family.
