I love the Moomins. And I love this book. It's not only because I love winter, but the way Moomins experiences winter for the first time.
I really the way Tove Jansson describes the difficulties Moomin faces in this new and strange world, the way he learns to deal with and face his fears and the hope he learns to have.
The language is wonderfully poetic, Jansson paints with her words.
I'll be sure to re-read this one the next winter, or when I feel a depressive mood coming over.
