The Summer Book

"They picked out stones that hadn't been worn completely round and threw then out into the water to make them rounder. The sun moved on across the sky, and the boat came around the point and took up the nets and dropped them right back in again." (Tove Jansson, p.62)

The perfect summer holiday book. The adventures of Sophie and her grandmother on a small island in Finland is beautifully written and funny too. The Swiss Cows are packing their suitcases and looking for last minute cheap flights to Scandinavia.
