"Somewhere under his hat the tune began to move, one part expectation, and two parts spring sadness, and for the rest just a colossal delight at being alone." Quote from Tove Jansson's story 'The Spring Tune,' found in "Tales from Moominvalley."

Tove Jansson’s first ever Moomin book ‘The Moomins and the Great Flood’. Tove Jansson began writing the book in War had broken out, and the 25 year old Finnish writer was thinking about a different world, one not shot through with fear and hatred.
