When Pettson announces that it’s time to plant seeds in the garden, Findus, his cat, plants a meatball. The hilarity continues as each night their hard work is undone by hungry chickens, then a rogue pig. When cows set up shop, Pettson and Findus must hatch a plan to protect their garden and Findus’s meatballs.
A Note From the Publisher
The newest title in the classic Swedish series featuring Pettson & Findus!
The colorful line-and-wash illustrations brim with lively details and exaggeration...Full of dramatic and comical moments, here’s a treat for fans of the Adventures of Pettson and Findus series (Carolyn Phelan Booklist)
The charm of the writing has much to recommend it, but it's the art that is the true star of the show. No matter how raucous or riotous Nordqvist's illustrations become, there's still room to include little Zen details, such as the chicken with its comb in a single hair roller or a pair of pups in a tree staring lovingly at the moon.
