The Summer Book
The Summer Book by Tove Jansson (Sort of Books, 2024)


The Summer Book by Tove Jansson (ISBN: 9780954221713, paperback). This novel comes across as part fiction, part fact and part memoir. It doesn’t read like a classic story but instead depicts a series of adventures, musings, still-days and storm-days experienced by a grandmother and her young granddaughter, living in much-loved summer home on a small Finnish island. It is simple, vivid, honest and delightful.
