As New. No Dust Jacket As Published. 8 1/2" X 11 1/2" 24 Un-numbered pages. 1991 Edition of a 1990 copyright. Boards and dust jacket use the same zany illustration. Glossy laminated boards with colorful barnyard/garden illustration Cackle, cackle, scratch, peck. No sooner do Festus and his zany cat Mercury start to plant their spring garden than a flock of hens comes rushing in to eat the seeds and pull up worms. The two gardeners dash to the rescue, only to find that this is just the beginning of their troubles! Follow the rollicking adventures of this spry old man and his precocious cat as they try to protect their precious garden. Sven Nordqvist's madcap story and hilariously detailed illustrations capture all the energy and color of a spring planting filled with fluttering chickens, mysterious foxes, curious cows, and a wandering pig. Nordqvist has enjoyed drawing since he was very young, but when he applied for admission to art school, he was turned down. So he earned a degree in architecture and taught at The College of Architecture in Lund, Sweden. Over the last sixteen years, Mr. Nordqvist has returned to illustrating. He works as a free-lance artist and writer, specializing in children's books and advertising. His works radiate joy and a playful personal style. His eccentric characters, most especially Festus and Mercury, have attracted fans around the world.
