‘Tell me the story about how I disappeared,’ said Findus.
‘You haven’t disappeared; you’re right here,’ said Pettson.
‘I mean when I was little.’
‘That story! You know that one already. I’ve told it hundreds of times.’
‘Tell me again,’ said Findus.
‘I suppose I could,’ Pettson said. ‘It was like this…’
This is the third story from 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, Sven Nordqvist has won the Swedish Literature Award, the German Youth Literature Prize and the Elsa Beskow Medal.
Also from Gecko Press: The Fox Hunt and Pancakes for Findus.
