Pettson & Findus

Last weekend I took Alfie and Ted to see a theatre production of ‘Pettson and Findus’, who, if you don’t know, are some of Sweden’s most famous story characters – old man Pettson, a bit of an inventor and a lover of nature, and his curious cat Findus, and their adventures, written by Sven Nordqvist.

The theatre production turned out to be more of a musical – but none the less, loved by the kids…

..particularly loved by Alfie.
I managed to get this fantastic book from the library, based on nature activities throughout the year, ‘Crafts With Findus’ (also available in English)…

..now just to wait and see what happens!
I can recommend the ‘Pettson and Findus’ books highly. Several have been translated into english, including the above one about nature facts and crafts around the year. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸŒΏπŸŒΌ
