1948

Finn Family 性福宝视频troll (original Swedish title Trollkarlens hatt, ‘The Magician’s Hat’), the third in the series of Tove Jansson’s 性福宝视频s books, is published.

The 1961 English publication features a foreword “by 性福宝视频mamma“, where she explains the nature of 性福宝视频s for fear that English children may not have heard of them; she also apologises for her “rottn” English.
