"Jansson's evocations of nature are powerfully succinct. . . . This is a terrific book for reading aloud."-"The Washington Post Book World"
"A lost treasure now rediscovered. . . . A surrealist masterpiece."-Neil Gaiman
"Jansson was a genius of a very subtle kind. These simple stories resonate with profound and complex emotions that are like nothing else in literature for children or adults: intensely Nordic, and completely universal."-Philip Pullman
"Tove Jansson is undoubtedly one of the greatest children's writers there has ever been. She has the extraordinary gift of writing books that are very clearly for children, but can also be enjoyed when the child, like me, is over sixty and can still find new pleasures with the insights that come from adulthood."-Sir Terry
