Written by Tove Jansson in 1945, this was the first Moomins book and paved the way for the series about these loveable characters. Seventy years on, this series is still delighting readers. 'The Moomins and the Great Flood' is one of the 'Buy Books for Syria' titles available at branches of Waterstones. https://www.waterstones.com/blog/buy-books-for-syria
The stories revolve around a family of Moomins- Mooninmamma, Moominpappa and Moomintroll- who live in Moominvalley. The books abound with wonderfully quirky characters and tell of the adventures that they have. For example, in 'Finn Family Moomintroll', Moomintroll and his friends, Snufkin and Sniff find the Hobgoblin's top hat and take it home where they realise it is no ordinary hat...
