<復刻版繪本> Button & Popper, by Oili Tanninen
Button & Popper一開始就是作者的書序。自述1963他由國外剛回芬蘭，要在赫爾辛基找個能夠容納他的家庭與公婆的公寓，因為人數眾多因此遇到不少挫折。於是成為這本書的寫作靈感...希望藉由Button & Popper的故事讓大家能夠更敞開心胸，接納有需要幫助的人。
考量印刷成本....為了讓這本繪本不至於價位太高，讓更多人能夠擁有並傳閱....Olini Tanninen特別用僅用黃色、橘色、黑色三種顏色印刷。在出版時書評還讚譽為一本有著時尚感的繪本 "the modern touch"

A 20th-century children’s classic: this fairy tale by one of Finland’s most loved authors and illustrators tells the story of pixie twin brothers who find their family a new home.
Button & Popper tells the story of a family of pixies (mother, father and twelve children) who live in an apple tree. They enjoy its warmth and shelter, and eating apple pie all spring and summer long. But when autumn comes, the leaves begin to drop and the apple tree becomes a cold and wet place to live. Twin brothers Button and Popper decided they will find their family a new home, but when they trek into the city and start enquiring about an apartment with room for twelve children and their parents, people just laugh or politely excuse themselves.
Luck strikes when, through a most fortunate mix-up at the market, the pixies find themselves in the home of a Professor Pilli. When he hears their story, he invites them to look after his house while he away at the South Pole. The brothers can’t believe the Professor’s kindness, and when the rest of their pixie family find out the good news, everyone is relieved and happy again.
