The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sven Nordqvist’s picture book characters Farmer Pettson and Findus, his irrespressible talking cat, lead lives firmly rooted in the natural world and this charming activity book is full of things to do and make involving plants, flowers and all that we find around us at different times of the year, from growing a herb garden to making bark boats, or creamy vegetable soup. Pettson and Findus are the perfect companions in all this, working happily in the pictures side by side, and clearely explaining to young readers what they have to do. Short extracts from stories about the pair of them are scattered throughout the book adding to the appeal. This is a quirky and unusual craft book but one that will become a real favourite with curious children and their parents. ~ Andrea Reece
