Findus Goes Fishing
by Sven Nordqvist
Age Range: 6-8
Farmer Pettson is in a bad mood, he wants to be left alone. He is angry and miserable so Findus knows he has to find some way of cheering him up, but the difficulty is can he do it without annoying Pettson further? Finally, Findus suggests going fishing which Pettson normally likes doing, but even this doesn't interest him. Can Findus come up with a cunning plan to lift Pettson's mood?
Another comic delight from award-winning Swedish author and illustrator Sven Nordqvist in this latest ‘Findus’ title to be translated into English by Nathan Large for Hawthorn Press. The eccentricities of Findus, the talking cat in his green stripy dungarees, and the curmudgeonly Farmer Pettson are wonderfully characterised; from the humour in the conversations between Findus and Pettson to the expressive illustrations, particularly of Findus' antics as he tries to cheer his owner up.
This is one of a series of nine books about Pettson and Findus published in English that include: Findus and the Fox, Findus at Christmas Findus Goes Camping, Findus Moves Out, Pancakes for Findus, When Findus was Little and Disappeared, Findus Plants Meatballs and Findus, Food and Fun – all reviewed on the Outside In World website.
