Moominland MidwinterImage via WikipediaThanks to fellow Moomin lover Alex Milway for sharing with me two delightful links about Tove Jansson and her unique, fantastical world:


I still vividly remember my first encounter with the Moomins at the age of six, when I was miserably sick at home with chicken pox and my father brought me Moominland Midwinter to read. It's the perfect story if you're sick of winter (which I suspect describes half my friendslist by now), or can't get to sleep, or just feeling ready for a quirky adventure with unexpected depths.

Anyway, if you love children's literature and you aren't familiar with the Moomins, you owe it to yourself to check out at least one of these articles. Or better yet, get hold of one of Tove Jansson's books.
