Pancakes for Findus
A worldwide hit, the wonderful Pancakes for Findus finally gets an English translation. And what a treat this is. This is the first story (of a series of nine) of the adventures of the eccentric, but definitely not mad, Farmer Pettson and his clever, dungaree-wearing cat Findus. The book is said to be a firm favourite of the writer Philip Pullman and it isn't difficult to see why. Findus and Pettson live in a broken-down old cottage in the countryside. And when Pettson isn't looking the tiny creatures who live with him and Findus infuriatingly and comically move things around.
First published in Sweden in 1985, Pancakes for Findus has the lovely, nostalgic feel of an old European folk tale, but with the added mischievousness and wit of a modern classic. A wonderful picturebook that creates a whole world of it own this is absolutely not to be missed. (Aimed at 5-7 year olds; but older and younger will thoroughly enjoy.) by Mark Thwaite
