When we were in Germany, Kaya watched Petterson and Findus on TV with his cousins. And his grandma. And me. They are such sweet stories.
How lucky that Pancakes for Findus was waiting for us at the library when we got back home. I had reserved it a while back, but it arrived just in time.
Since picking up the book from the library we have been reading it every day several times.
It is the story of how Petterson (who is called ‘Pettson’ in the English translation, but I can’t quite get used to that) and Findus, the cat, want to make a pile of pancakes for Findus’ birthday. (One of his birthdays, because he has three – more fun that way!)
This venture is not without obstacles, but in the end the two have a lovely pancake party in their garden.
Pancakes are my favourite food, so of course I complied with Kaya’s request for our own pancake party immediately!
We usually eat our pancakes with apple sauce, but Petterson and Findus have theirs with jam and cream.
Not bad at all!
(The book has Petterson’s own pancake recipe in the back, perfect for spreading the pancake love.)
We even have some batter leftover for another feast today, yay!
