Publisher Summary

Pettson and Findus are back in this uproarious tale about gardening! 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.

Who Wrote A Ruckus in the Garden

author & illustrator
Sven Nordqvist

Swedish author Sven has been illustrating children’s books since 1983. The Pettson and Findus series is an international bestseller, with live action movies and a popular television show in Sweden and Germany! When he’s not illustrating books for children, he spends time building playgrounds, children’s play areas at hospitals, and decorations for schools. 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 life.
