Some of my favorite stories as a child were the Moomin books by Tove Jansson. A couple of years ago, I discovered that she also did a comic strip for the Evening News, a London newspaper, and I fell in love all over again. This year, I found out that the Moomins are also in a series of picture books written and illustrated by Jansson. This is the first one to be re-printed. I love the stories, but the book's beautiful design is what makes it one of my favorites of the year.
