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

"It's not often that we come across books with such immediate and lasting appeal as Sven Nordqvist's 'Findus' series. The stories are ingenious, the characters are quirky and original, and the illustrations are absolutely delightful.... I can't recommend them highly enough. Hurrah for Findus!"

--Philip Pullman, author, His Dark Materials trilogy
