Well done BBC on a really interesting programme on Tove. Something really different and how interesting to find out more about the woman and author.

I agree, though I must admit I had never heard of the lady or read any of her work.
The programme was a fascinating look at her lfe, work nd th times in which she lived.

I watched this too. The Swedish rock band Ritual were fans of Tove Jansson's work and their first album includes 'Seasong for the Moominpappa'.

Read her works - brilliantly constructed and written - books I would never part with.

Hope this gets repeated on BBC4 sometime. Clashed with stuff, had to choose. The Moomin family are a wonderful creation and get revisted every year. Moominmamma is my heroine.
