The Moomins is a TV series. There are many Moomin fans in Japan. There’s even a Moomin café in Tokyo. It opened in 2003.

This café has seven Moomin characters. When you sit down, a waitress puts a Moomin at your table. The Moomin sits with you when you drink your coffee.

There can be more people than Moomins in the café. Everybody wants to sit with a Moomin. Staff members must move the Moomins. This way, each person has a Moomin for a while.

Difficult words: series (show which has many parts), character (person or animal in a book, play or film), staff member (person who works somewhere).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
