Tiny Troll is very unhappy that his mother is leaving him with a babysitter while she goes to a party for grown-ups.
A Moomintroll is small and shy and fat, and has a Moominpappa and a Moominmamma. Moomins live in the forests of Finland. One day Moominpappa is feeling at a loss. He has no idea what to do with himself because it seems everything has already been done. So he takes his family off to start a new life in a lighthouse on a tiny, rocky island far out to sea. It’s rather quiet and lonely at first, but as they begin to explore their unusual surroundings the Moomins discover some funny and surprising new things about themselves.
When a flood crashes through the valley, the Moomins move into a theater as it floats by, and they put on a play to find their lost relatives.
