About the Author

Sven Nordqvist (b, 1946) is a well-loved Swedish children's author and illustrator. The Findus and Pettson stories draw on his playful adventures with his two young sons, and his unique illustrations are inspired by a delight in everyday life. Sven Nordqvist sets out intentionally to create a safe world in his Pettson and Findus series; a world in which problems can find resolution. Such a world, he believes, provides the security that children need in today's world: "The world should be comprehensible. Essentially that's how I myself would like it to be."

Reviews

"Bundle Number One was enthralled by the story, laughing at the pesky hens laying eggs in the sleeping bag and enjoying the suspense of the night sounds."

"The stories are ingenious, the characters are quirky and original, and the illustrations are absolutely delightful. I've seldom seen such an endless, apparently effortless flow of invention. Readers young and old will spend happy hours poring over them to find all the details, and revisit them again and again. I can't recommend them highly enough. Hurrah for Findus!"

--Philip Pullman, author of "His Dark Materials" trilogy
