Farmer Pettson sat doing the crossword, with Findus the cat on his knee. “Tell me about when I disappeared,” said Findus.

“You haven’t disappeared,” said Pettson. “You’re sitting right here.”

“Yes, but—when I was little.“

“Oh then ... But you’ve heard the story so often before.”

“But tell it to me anyway!”

So here is the story of when Findus was little and disappeared. Findus and Pettson live in a red farmhouse, with a henhouse, workshop, and toolshed set among the forests, fields, and meadows of rural Sweden. Every picture tells a story, with a fascinating, magical world of tiny creatures.

(Children aged 4 and up and early years educators)

Sven Nordqvist's other book, Pancakes for Findus, was the London Sunday Times “Children’s Book of the Week” in December 2007.
