Tove Jansson, The Hunting of the Snark As a kid, I was simultaneously fascinated and scared by the moomins.

'Who Will Comfort Toffle?' by Tove Jansson, 1960 Tove Jansson has been one of my favorite illustrators since I was a little girl. The way she can tell a story wit the colors and shapes sends me straight back to my childhood.

Moomin looks spooked out. I wonder if the Groke is close by. *Shiver* The Groke (in German "Die Morra") is such a creepy character. Although she only seeks the light because she's lonely.
