The heartwarming tale of Moomin's reunion with his parents
After losing both his fortune and his girlfriend, Moomin has hit rock bottom. Luckily, in his darkest moment, he stumbles across the beloved family he lost as a child--Moominmamma and Moominpappa--and together, the Moomins embark on their first adventure. Moominmamma struggles to balance her husband's desire for danger with her own homebody sensibilities, while Moomin fears his new parents will eventually tire of him. Moomin and Family Life is a poignant story of love and reunion that unwinds in this classic Moomin caper from Tove Jansson.

A surrealist masterpiece. Honest." -Neil Gaiman"
