What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A hilarious cumulative story about baking a ‘pancake-cake’ for the cat with three birthdays a year! When Pettson sets out to make Findus a cake, he finds that he’s missing a key ingredient. This starts a hilarious chain of events resulting in Pettson distracting a bull, climbing through a skylight into his attic to find his fishing pole to fish the key out of the well, so he can open his shed, fix his flat tire, then ride to the store to buy some flour (and a new pair of overalls), then made a tasty cake for Findus!

Who Wrote The Birthday Cake

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.
