Findus Rules the Roost
by Sven Nordqvist
Age Range: 6-8
Farmer Pettson has a hen house with ten hens. Findus loves to tease the hens; they chase each other around the yard as they are all the best of friends. One day, Pettson brings home a mysterious cardboard box – a surprise for the hens. ‘Look a rooster!’ the hens squawk. ‘How wonderful he is!’ Findus is at first intrigued but soon his mood changes. He is unhappy because he feels the new arrival is getting far too much attention. To make matters even worse, the rooster begins to crow and it’s terribly loud which makes poor Findus’ ears ache. The rooster doesn’t allow Findus has to come up with a plan to restore everything to the status quo, but what can he do?
Findus Rules the Roost provides more delightful comedy from award-winning Swedish author and illustrator Sven Nordqvist in this tenth ‘Findus’ title to be translated into English by Hawthorn Press. As ever the eccentricities in the characterisation, humour in the conversations between Findus and Pettson and the captivating illustrations make this another great ‘Fundus’ tale to relish.
This is one of a series of ten books about Pettson and Findus published in English that include: Findus and the Fox, Findus at Christmas Findus, Food and Fun,Findus Goes Camping, Findus Goes Fishing,Findus Moves Out, Findus Plants Meatballs,Pancakes for Findus and When Findus was Little and Disappeared.
