Findus, the talking cat, challenges Pettson to join him as he runs, jumps, and clambers around the farm. Pettson tries to keep up, with comical results. However, there is one thing that he is very good at!

This brightly illustrated book is aimed at readers from 2 to 6 years, but will be enjoyed by anyone.

The Findus series follows the adventures and misdemeanors of the mischievous Findus the Cat and Farmer Pettson, along with their muckle friends. As they plant, forage, fish, discover, and generally get up to all sorts of mayhem, we can explore the ups and downs of friendship, as well as the fights and forgiveness with them.

Alongside the vibrant storylines the Findus books approach personal and social issues that the characters learn to overcome with humor and playfulness.

Sven Nordqvist

Sven Nordqvist is a leading Swedish children's illustrator and writer. Nordqvist was born in Helsingborg and grew up in Halmstad, Sweden. He originally wanted to be an illustrator but was rejected by several art schools. Instead, he studied architecture in Lund and worked as a lecturer in architecture in the university. Meanwhile, he looked for work as an illustrator of advertisements, posters, and picture books. In 1983, he won first prize in a children's book competition and since then has worked exclusively as an author and illustrator of children's books, which have won awards in Sweden and Germany. The Findus and Pettson stories draw on his own playful adventures with his two young sons. Nordqvist's unique illustrations are inspired by his delight in everyday life.
