Author(s): Sven Nordqvist
This is the third story translated and published by Gecko Press about one of Sweden's most popular characters, the quirky and forgetful Farmer Pettson and his curious talking cat, Findus.
Farmer Pettson tells the story of when Findus was little and came to live with him, and how he lost him and found him again. It is a charming, warm and funny story with typical Sven Nordqvist detail in the story and in the pictures.
Sven Nordqvist's 'Pettson and Findus' books have been adapted for television, film and theatre. One of Sweden's most popular illustrators, he has won the Swedish Literature Award, the German Youth Literature Prize and the Elsa Beskow Medal.
