'Who Will Comfort Toffle?' by Tove Jansson (translated by Kingsley Hart), published by Schildts, 1960

'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.
