Travelling Light - Tove Jansson http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00xpp4v/Afternoon_Reading_Travelling_Light_Shopping/blurb - The writer and artist Tove Jansson is best known as the creator of the Moomin stories, which were first published in English sixty years ago and have remained in print ever since.
