Something in the Air

My absolute heroine, Tove Jansson. My grandmother's neighbour used to read to me from this very book which sat on a bookshelf outside her kitchen in a village called Bryant's Bottom.

Then, I read from this book to my daughter when she was small and we wrote to Tove Jansson many years ago, filling the envelope with drawings and flowers and a list of countries where all my Moomintroll books had lived and she wrote back a long,wonderful letter with pages of stickers and postcards.

I still dip into her books and am back in the world of sunshine, rowing boats and adventure.
