/ Project description /

“Moomins and the winter wonderland” is a story about the special time in the Moominvalley. Our main protagonist is Moomintroll, who decides to stay awake this winter, contrary to the usual Moomins winter slumber. He wants to find out how does the world look like, when his whole family sleeps. This winter he will discover what is snow, and frost, and will learn a lot of new things about the winterish Moominvalley. But what he expects the most, is the mysterious guest, Christmas – who is about to visit the Moominhouse very soon.
