Moominland Midwinter - written & illustrated by Tove Jansson edition). A favourite moomin book!

Simply including 'exploits' in the title of a children's book earns my undying admiration, but Tove Jansson somehow managed to combine Scandinavian homely charm with existential terror. Don't believe me? Try this on your child as bedtime reading. And there are buttons and other sewing references!  ;)
