A Ruckus in the Garden
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.
Sven Nordqvist is a renowned children's book illustrator and writer in Sweden and across Europe. When he's not illustrating books for children, he spends time building playgrounds, children's play areas at hospitals, and decorations for schools. Carpentry has always been an important part of Nordqvist's life--often reflected in the actions of his industrious character Pettson--with the central goal being the enrichment of children's lives. The beloved Pettson and Findus stories draw, in part, on Nordqvist's loving observations of his two sons when they were younger. His unique illustrations are inspired by the delights of everyday live.
