I mentioned a few days back that I got a package from Drawn & Quarterly. Well, avert your eyes all ye children who receive holiday gifts from me, lest your Christmas comeuppance be spoiled. (Hey, if Target can start shilling for the holidays before Halloween, so can I!)
First up is Pippi Moves In! From the publisher… «Pippi Moves In marks the first time that the legendary Pippi Longstocking comics by famed children’s author and creator Astrid Lindgren and Danish illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman will be published outside of Scandinavia in thirty years, as well as their first ever publication in English.»
Pippi Longstocking on an ultra awesome pill. Awesome as an adjective doesn’t even begin to do it justice.
Tucked underneath were these little paperback Moomin comic strip books by the eternally fabulous Tove Jansson: Moomin’s Winter Follies and Moomin Valley Turns Jungle. Perfect stocking stuffers!
And perfect additions to our Moomin picture book collection: The Dangerous Journey, Who Will Comfort Toffle? and The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My.
Time to start book hoarding for the holidays folks!
