Later, he appeares when his sister is being attatacked by a poisonus bush of the Angostura family, but Snufkin did not recognise him as he was green rather than mauve. He and his sister then proceeded with the group to Moomin valley.

When the group went to the the village stores, he bought a notebook to write down everything you have to do when a comet comes. He turned down the blue book beacause blue reminded him of school
