Vem ska trösta knyttet?

Vem ska trösta knyttet? - Tove Jansson This short, lavishly illustrated narrative poem is a testament to Jansson's genius. This tale of Knytt is a loving one that touches upon shyness and depression, and the courage required to overcome it. The backdrop is the always colourful Moomin valley with its great characters and perfect balance between cosiness and the awe and fear before the overwhelming forces of nature.
