If, like me, you have only know Tove Jansson as creator of The Moomins, then you might like to check out the season exploring her work and short stories now airing on BBC radio 4 as part of celebrations of the centenary of her birth. As well as Moomins, she was an artist, illustrator and writer of novels and short stories.

Have a look now and discover some Scandinavian products available in the UK! If you notice some obvious omissions or have some great Nordic retail tips, let me know in the comments.
