Tove Jansson. The creator of Moomin characters. Helsinki. Even though she was a swede/finn I think Moomi's are one of the best finnish things ever. Design, caracter, story, moral and emotional appeal wise.
'Who Will Comfort Toffle?' by Tove Jansson (translated by Kingsley Hart), published by Schildts, 1960
