en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 29 May 2003
An elderly artist and her six-year-old grand-daughter while away a summer together on a tiny island in the gulf of Finland. As the two learn to adjust to each other's fears, whims and yearnings, a fierce yet understated love emerges - one that encompasses not only the summer inhabitants but the very island itself.Written in a clear, unsentimental style, full of brusque humour, and wisdom, The Summer Book is a profoundly life-affirming story.Tove Janssoncaptured much of her own life and spirit in the book, which was her favourite of her adult novels. This new edition, with a Foreword by Esther Freud, sees the return of a European literary gem - fresh, authentic and deeply humane.

Tove Jansson was a genius. This is a marvellous, beautiful, wise novel, which is also very funny.
This is a wonderful, life-affirming, spirited book. Reading it was a tonic.
Eccentric, funny, wise, full of joys and small adventures. This is a book for life.
