Moomin vol. 2

Here's how this works: I finish reading something, and I tell you about it, and I try not to bore you to death.

The second volume (of a planned five) of the oddball Moomin strip by Tove Jansson is every bit as weird and wonderful as the first. It's a bizarre, stream-of-conscious adventure, with unexpected twists and genuinely, gently strange characters showing up to throw the Moomins' lifestyle upside down. Since it's already a topsy-turvy place to start with, nothing happens here that anybody could expect. A genuinely smile-inducing joy, and highly recommended for all readers.
