Tove Jansson Why? Because she wrote the wonderful, marvellous, philosophical Moomin books. She also seems to have had life one could fantasise about, living on a small island. Her art is beautiful. A great writer and artist.

Finnish author, illustrator, and comic-strip author Tove Jansson is best known for her Moomin series of books for children and comic strips, which feature sweet, nature and adventure loving, whimsically illustrated creatures populating their own Moomin-world. She also wrote several books for adults, including The Summer Book, about a six-year-old girl living with her grandmother on a tiny island in the gulf of Finland.
