"According to the astute introduction, this book aims at updating Tove Jansson's literary standing . It clearly achieves this purpose...The collection is intended tor English-speaking readers, and many of the essays are written from a non-Scandinavian perspective - however, that by no means diminishes its usefulness to Scandinavian readership. On the contrary, it is refreshing to see one's own culture viewed through foreign eyes. The usefulness of the volume is further enhanced by lists of Finnish/Swedish editions of Tove Jansson's works, English translations of the titles, British as well as North American editions, and a brief listing of secondary works. In addition, each essay is accompanied by a list of works cited." Virpi Zuck, Oregon University, Scandinavian Studies Vol. 81, Issue 1, 2009
