Findus at Christmas
It is the day before Christmas Eve and there is lots to do but disaster strikes when Pettson sprains his ankle. How can they celebrate Christmas now—with no tree, ham, meatballs or gingerbread? For all their resourcefulness, Findus and Pettson are close to giving up, when suddenly there is a knock on the door…
A wonderful tale of kindness and sharing, about how Christmas can bring out the best in people—and in cats, naturally!
About the Author
Sven Nordqvist is a leading Swedish children’s illustrator and writer. Nordqvist was born in Helsingborg and grew up in Halmstad, Sweden. He originally wanted to be an illustrator but was rejected by several art schools. Instead, he studied architecture in Lund and worked as a lecturer in architecture in the university. Meanwhile, he looked for work as an illustrator of advertisements, posters, and picture books. In 1983, he won first prize in a children’s book competition and since then has worked exclusively as an author and illustrator of children’s books, which have won awards in Sweden and Germany. The Findus and Pettson stories draw on his own playful adventures with his two young sons. Nordqvist’s unique illustrations are inspired by his delight in everyday life.
