There's immediate appeal in every brownie story for those of us who grew up in the Palmer Cox brownie era. But somehow this Finnish brownie remains an outsider, and no creature of magic. None the less, this is a pleasant little story of a brownie made out of an oak loaf and an acorn, and his mild adventures in a Finnish farmhouse with his friend, the cat. After alarm clocks, stoves, brooms, curtains and doors, he comes to the conclusion that his outdoor cave is preferable. But in the course of the adventure he finds himself a name, Ya-Ya. Alice Carsey's drawings in Line are satisfying.
