    PDF Tove Jansson  Sommarboken Epub ß Â sommarboken epub, Sommarboken PDFWhy do only the very very young or the very very old have time to ponder what heaven is like? Or to bask in the simple act of diving? Or to invent stories about mice and worms and write a novel about a day in their animal lives? Maybe because grandmothers are the only people in the world capable of educating using the art of playing and granddaughters are the only ones ready to play with grandmothers seriously This is in short what Tove Jansson portrays in The Summer Book a summer that is not Mediterranean and a book that is not only for children but rather for those of all ages who still see the world as a place full of potential wonder and adventureJansson evokes the chilly nights of August the virulence of summer storms and the silent walks on the untamed beaches of a lost island in Finland with tenderness and mischievous humor; calling out to the hidden child that lays dormant in adults and the grown up that peeks

    PDF Tove Jansson  Sommarboken Epub ß Â sommarboken epub, Sommarboken PDFAs luck would have it there was a Tove Jansson exhibition on at the Helsinki Ateneum while I was in town – August marks the centenary of her birth It's still strange to me to realise that a hundred years ago is only the twentieth century now To me ‘last century’ still suggests Oscar Wilde Thomas Hardy Amidst all the seascapes moody self portraits and Moomin sketches I was fascinated by a video exhibit that showed a loop of grainy home movie footage Tove and her partner Tuulikki Pietilä on their island in the Pellinkis laughing in the sun wearing baggy knitted jumpers and looking – as people always do in grainy home movie footage – especially deadIn some ways death is the central theme of this book but to say so gives entirely the wrong impression – it is light charming funny enriching very alive not remotely morbid or depressing The isla

    PDF Tove Jansson  Sommarboken Epub ß Â sommarboken epub, Sommarboken PDFTotally charming and remarkably deep little book makes for a very happy afternoon Jannson's talent shines through in her depiction of both the old and the young The Grandmother and Sophia have much in common and the novel is revelation on how to write different ages with honesty and clarity It's such a lean thing that it's not particularly worth pulling out individual episodes but there are a couple of moments Sophia's book on worms a thwarted party that will stick with me Gorgeous descriptions A wonderful consistency in usage of words like nice and pretty words that should be used oftenIf I had to describe it I would say that it's sort of the spiritual link between Sei Shonagon and Lydia Davis

Then you graduated to adult books and began to wonder why really wonderful books and authors for adults were so rare and difficult to discover Like this summer island a perfectly ordinary and absolutely enchanted place off the coast of Finland where Grandmother and her granddaughter Sophia spend every summer from Sophia's early childhood through her adolescent years Grandmother is a sculptor a lover of nature unconventional; Sophia has inherited her strong personality and way o
