Learning with Findus and Pettson is a fun activity book that helps young children learn the basics of counting, shape recognition, and colors. Suitable for children from the age of 2 years up, this activity book is brightly illustrated with lively and lovable characters from Sven Nordqvist’s Findus and Pettson storybooks.

Using the adventures and misdemeanors of the mischievous Findus the Cat and old Farmer Pettson, along with their farm animals and muckle friends, Sven created puzzles and activities to spark children’s imagination and engage young minds.

The perfect book for long trips and rainy days!

“The characters are quirky and original, and illustrations are absolutely delightful.... I can't recommend them highly enough.”

—Philip Pullman

“...the pictures create a world, not only depicting the farmhouse and surrounding countryside in irresistible detail, but also telling humorous little sub-narratives about the tiny creatures that live about the farm.”

—Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

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.
