Pettson is a farmer who lives together with his cat Findus out on the beautiful countryside. They live in a little red farmhouse, with a bunch of hens in the henhouse, ongoing crazy projects in the workshop and a woodshed full of small creatures. Their world is illustrated in a fascinating way, with many details and where small creatures can be found here there and everywhere. Every page is like a piece of art and each time I read the books I find new details or hidden creatures I haven’t noticed before. My favorite books are: The fox hunt and Pancakes for Findus. In total there are 9 books about Pettson and Findus and sold in 6 million copies worldwide in 44 languages. The last book came out 2001: When Findus was little & disappeared, this is ages ago and I even lost the hope that it will ever come more..
Yesterday the great news reached me, or actually I reached for the news. Finally a new book is here with release in a couple of weeks. “Findus moves out” is the title and I am very much looking forward to loose myself in Nordqvists great illustrations and story about the two sweetest literature characters I know.
