This was one of the early books in the ‘Findus and Pettson’ series by Sven Nordqvist. I have now read every one of the eight books in the series and I think they’re all an absolute delight.
This book has particular attraction for me because it tells of how Findus, the talking cat, came to live with Pettson, the farmer. The stories are charming and amusing and the illustrations are busy with lots of animals and detail for children to look and discover. Children love these books, so do parents and grandparents as they can read them safe in the knowledge that they’re harmless and gentle but are also fun, well-written stories which are great for girls and boys.
