I found the old familiar paperback edition of this book, the one illustrated with a bored Moominpapa having tea, in a Little Free Library and took it home with me.
The stories are silly and fantastical, and also contain serious themes. Authenticity. Friendship. Attachment to things. Attachment to people. Fear and dread, and surprising resolutions that lighten them, sparks of life and light and love.
The endearing line drawings are also by Tove Jansson.
I read and enjoyed it, and then took it back to the Little Free Library where I found it, for someone else to enjoy.
