‘Findus Rules the Roost’ by Sven Nordqvist……a review

Our friends at Hawthorn Press kindly sent us the latest Findus and Pettson book! Find out what we thought as we share our review of ‘Findus Rules the Roost’ 





Farmer Pettson has a surprise for his hens, a proud and very handsome Cockerel! The hens are thrilled, but Findus the cat is less than impressed by this noisy new addition to the farm. The rooster is spoiling all of his fun, the hens are no longer interested in playing, the rooster has taken to chasing him and can give a nasty peck, and the noise is simply too much to bear. 

It’s time for a plan, Findus sets to work on a cunning trick to get rid of the pesky cockerel once and for all…but will his plan work?




We were excited to read this latest story, having read many of the other titles in the series we knew we were in for a treat and we were certainly not disappointed. Findus Rules the Roost is beautifully written, warm and humorous. Both Bundles thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story and pausing to explore and appreciate the stunning illustrations, in which there are many delightful details and characters to be discovered. It is already becoming a firm favourite in our spring book box.




If you haven’t met Findus and Pettson yet, what are you waiting for? And for those of you who know the characters well,  this story will make a great addition to your collection. 

‘Findus Rules the Roost’ is the tenth book in the Findus and Pettson series to be published by Hawthorn Press. Find it, and all of the others here
