Findus Moves Out
by Sven Nordqvist
Age Range: 6-8
Poor Pettson! Every morning at 4.00am he is woken by the noise of Findus bouncing on his bed like a trampoline. In exasperation he tells Findus that he will have to move out unless he stops. Findus decides that he might just do that and asks Pettson to convert the old outhouse into a house for him. Now he can jump on his bed as much as he wants without disturbing anyone.
The trouble is that Pettson really misses his infuriating little friend and Findus too starts to feel lonely in his house as the novelty of living on his own starts to wear off. Will it be possible for them to find a compromise?
Another lovely comic story about Findus, the talking cat in the green stripy dungarees, from award-winning Swedish author and illustrator Sven Nordqvist.
The delightful characterisation and cleverly incorporated subtle humour in the conversations between Findus and Farmer Pettson together with the illustrations of Findus’ expressive body language are what really makes these stories special. This is one of a series of nine books about Pettson and Findus.
