Moomins on the Riviera – giveaway

Moomins on the Riviera

There are some books and characters that are timeless in my opinion.  In Friday the Moomins on the Riviera is released in cinemas across the country through Vertigo Films.

We join the Moomins, Snorkmaiden and Little My as they leave Moominvalley and head to France and the Riviera. Their adventure takes them to a whole new world. Snorkmaiden falls for a local playboy, Moominpappa decides to become ‘de Moomin’ and poor Moominmamma wonders what has happened to those she loves.  Will they all return to their senses?

Based on Tove Jansson’s famous comic strips, Moomins on the Riviera uses hand drawn animation to bring the classic family to life.  The film is U rated and runs for 80 minutes.

    was very young and was delighted when I could read them myself!

  24. Alice from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll. I share the same surname as the author (even though that’s just his pen name) so I always felt an attachment to Alice, plus she had such wonderful adventures off by herself and having no sisters myself felt akin to her in more ways than one 😉
