The Moomins, Snorkmaiden and Little My, in search of an adventure, set sail for the Riviera, where, after a journey fraught with menacing storms, Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy’s sting is the most painful of all. When Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name ‘de Moomin’, an exasperated Moominmamma retires to the relative calm of their trusty old boat, to wait for her family to come to their senses. For the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threatened.

Marketing strategies:
The Moomins are the central characters in an extremely popular and bestselling series of books and a comic strip by Tove Jansson (1914 - 2001), one of the most famous children's authors in Scandinavia. The Moomin books have been translated to over 30 languages and have been the basis for numerous television series, films, operas, radio productions and even a theme park.
