Ninety-seven: Moomin, originally uploaded by meganknight.
We grew up reading Tove Jansson, who my mother absolutely loved. It was years and years before I ever met anyone who had ever heard of the Moomins, but recently, they seem to have undergone something of a retro-revival. This is a coaster from a funky scandinavian shop in Bath (I also bought a moose for my key chain), and one of my favourite drawings from the books.

I’ve never heard of Tove Jansson or the Moomins, but just seeing this illustration, I want to read the books.
Oh, you must. Snufkin is a character from Tove Jansson as well.
