I am in love with Jansson's characters. Her style is sort of Pogo by way of Mary Blair, only she predates both. So cute! And the blend of absurdity and earnestness is ever so endearing. At first blush the strips felt stilted, but then that transformed into charm. The first three chapters are perfection. Chapter 4, though, was just awkward. Aside from a random talking helicopter with the face of an Angry Bird, this concluding story arc just didn't click.
