Moominpappa's remarkable Memoirs, written to delight his son Moomintroll and friends. One fabulous tale follows another, and not just about Moominpappa but Sniff and Snufkin's fathers too - the rather muddled Mudller and the carefree Joxter. Add to this mix the genius inventor Hodgkins, and a grand finale in which Moominpappa rescues a shipwrecked Moominmamma from the waves, and the fun becomes irrestible.
