This article is about the 1978 album. See Who Will Comfort Toffle? for the original picture book.

Who Will Comfort Toffle? (Swedish: Vem ska trösta Knyttet?) is a 1978 album by Swedish acid/psych progg duo Peter Lundblad and Torbjörn Eklund based upon the picture book Who Will Comfort Toffle? by Tove Jansson. In 1994 it was re-released on CD.

In essence, this is an audiobook, but the story is performed through songs using the original text as lyrics, making it just as much a musical experience. The album features elements of progressive concept albums, with interwoven tracks, reprises and extended instrumental sections.

In 1980, the book was adapted into an animated shortfilm, using an abridged version of this album as its soundtrack.
