Tove Jansson, A Winter Book, Moomin

Apparently this collection of some of Jansson's short stories has had poor reviews in the press. So I really am glad I don't read newspapers any more. Not as wow-stunning as The Summer Book, but full of little jewels of observation and wit.

Moomin Book One collects together the first four comic strips that Jansson did for the London Evening News in the 1950s. Stupid bureaucrats are brought down by the gently inevitable forces of anarchism. Go and buy it so they'll definitely do the rest, it's fantastic.
