So glad you liked it. P.

Intriguing - I loved her Moomin stories when I was younger, so thanks for the review!

Oh dear... That's two recomendations for Tove Jansson in the same week! Definitely one to add to the list.

Melissa!

You keeping adding to my 'books to read' list. Thank goodness I no longer get the book before I'm ready to read it and create another pile in my house anymore...but I'm tempted!

Love your review, Karen, it captures everything I thought about the book. I found 'The Squirrel' to be the most (perhaps only) disturbing one in the collection, though - disturbing, but still excellent.

Cornflower's readers may be interested to know that in another life "Dark Puss" is known to some of his colleagues as "Calvinist Squirrel". I wonder if they, like Jansson did, warily share their lives with me?

All Jansson's books are very good and strike a real chord with those brought up in the north of Europe. I hope that more of her adult work is translated soon.
