Sweet summer reading

I'm reading Moominpappa at Sea by Tove Jansson. I think there's some deep wisdom of life included in all the Moomin books, although they're categorized as children's reading. This book is particularly charming, because there's a mysterious and isolated island, a lighthouse, beautiful seahorses, the horrible groke and of course the sweet Moomin family. Elements of a Great Story indeed.

The simple black and white illustrations are also magical.
