Fox Chase: The Adventures of Pettson and Findus
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.
