Perhaps my favorite book series ever is the Moomintrolls by Tove Jansson. I bought a bunch of them a while ago, but when I went to read one to my daughter, I found that I was missing two of them. Thus I ordered them, one a paperback, and one a hardback. The hardback was just because it was the only copy I could find, but, oh, it is beautiful. The Moomins and the Great Flood is the first in the series, and the edition I purchased has gorgeous illustrations alongside Jansson’s original drawings. The binding is beautiful. I may have to replace my paperbacks with these ones issued by Sort Of Books.
I can’t wait to share the characters that inhabit these pages with my daughter and my son.
