Keeping Up With Findus
by Sven Nordqvist
Age Range: Under_5
Findus decides to challenge Farmer Pettson. He wants to know if Pettson can hope on both feet, run as fast as him, scatter the hens or climb to the top of the apple tree. Pettson does his best to keep up, often with comical results. “Well what can you do, Pettson” asks Findus. But there are some things even Findus has to agree that Pettson is very good at!
In this tale by award-winning Swedish author/illustrator Sven Nordqvist, translated by Nathan Large, he provides more delightful comedy with the lovable characters of Farmer Pettson and Findus, the talking cat, in a smaller format book aimed at slightly younger readers. As ever, the eccentricities in the characterisation, humorous conversations between Findus and Pettson and the captivating illustrations retain the charm of the Findus series.
