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!

(Ages 3–7)

“[Sven Nordqvist's] stories are ingenious, the characters are quirky and original, and the illustrations are absolutely delightful. I can’t recommend them highly enough.” —Philip Pullman, author of The Golden Compass and numerous other bestsellers for young people
