Tove Jansson’s memoirs of her early years, filled with joy, exuberance, and the satisfaction of being—with an abundance of photographic illustrations.

The excitement of being alive and savoring the good things that are life pervades all the writing of Tove Jansson. The beloved nine volumes of her Moomintroll chronicles for younger readers, her two adult novels, The Summer Book and Sun City; and her internationally known paintings and drawings reveal this delight in existence. In her memoirs of her very early years she shares the pleasures of growing up with a happy, freedom-loving family and with nature in Finland. It is a childhood memory that speaks to people everywhere.
