Only then can he bike to the shop to buy flour for the pancakes.

“The delightfully characterised Pettson is eccentric, but not as much as his neighbours think he is. There is succinct and underplayed comedy, too, in his dry exchanges with his cat, whose body language is as expressive as his speech. Best of all is the way in which the pictures create a world, not only depicting the farmhouse and surrounding countryside in irresistible detail, but also telling humorous little sub-narratives about the tiny creatures who live around the farm. Subsequent readings are bound to yield more discoveries than the first.” —Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Week
