    There's going to be a pancake picnic and everyone in Moominvalley is invited. It's time for Moomintroll to gather everyone together, but where is Little My? She loves pancakes!

    Little My's distinctive red dress should be easy to spot, but it turns out that there are lots of other red things in Moominvalley! Moominpappa's saw, Snorkmaiden's flowers, Snufkin's tent . . . Will Moomintroll manage to find his friend before the pancakes get cold?

    This interactive novelty format has a different die-cut hole on every spread, so children can help Moomin peep through the holes to find his friend.
