really liked it
bookshelves: botany-garden-nature, contemporary-fiction
Read from July 21 to 26, 2010

I hope to read this over again more slowly. Jansson's keen and detailed observation made the natural world of the island visible. Her description of the prickly but loving relationship between the grandmother and granddaughter rang true as well. I especially loved the stories about the Venice game, Bereneice, and the little creatures.
