Tove Jansson, The Hunting of the Snark.

Tove Jansson, The Hunting of the Snark As a kid, I was simultaneously fascinated and scared by the moomins.

“‘What is it?’ said Moomintroll. Discoveries were his very favourite thing (after mysterious paths, swimming and secrets, that is)

I could happily curl up asleep with all my sewing treasures but I think Little My has run off with Moomin mama's sewing basket!

One of my favourite parts in Moominland Midwinter. Why do we never have huge bonfires by moonlight in the snow?

Everyone needs warmth and light, even The Groke. Mörkö on yhtä ihana  ku varikset. #Moomins
