Moomin ...

I am about to call my little brother who is in Finland. This post is very Moomin, as they always remind me of him. For Christmas he sent me some cool stuff in a Moomin Finnish Post box. They are weird little guys, kind of like Finnish people really.

I adore the moomins- we have a big moomin cake tin, which doesn't get nearly enough use!

Gasp! Trolls! But fortunately most excellent trolls. Tove Jansson also wrote grown up books like The Summer Book which is adorable. But she's famous for the Moomins. In the 1970s on telly we had the stories read to us with the pictures. They are quite wonderfully odd.

We love the Moomins, our children have biscuit cutters in the shape of Moomin and Snuffkin, and visitors get their coffee in Moomin cups.

My husband is half Finnish (very moomin trollish he is too).
My mother in law has a letter from Tove Jansson, she wrote to her when she was a little girl and was written back to.
