Snufkin’s tent

It is in Comet in Moominland that Moomintroll and Sniff first encounter Snufkin and his tent by the riverbank. When they first meet, Moomintroll wonders why Snufkin would like to live in a place like this, to which Snufkin replies: ‘I wander about and when I find a place that I like I put up my tent and play my mouth-organ.’.

Snufkin’s tent is yellow in Comet in Moominland, but is later described as green, for example in Moominvalley in November.
