I agree with this description. The best books for any age, not just babies. Forget the spooky stop motion cartoon. It's all about the eight original books and Tove Jansson's pen and ink drawings. I would choose these as my luxury on desert island discs.
So true. "A theatre is the most important sort of house in the world because that's where people are shown what they could be if they wanted, and what they'd like to be if they dared to, and what they really are." - Tove Jansson.
