'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.

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.

Tove Jansson Love her illustrations and her imagination.
