But he also meets the nasty tomcat Måns, who loves nothing better than to make life difficult for Pelle…
Parents and children alike will adore these charming, classic books, now translated into English for the very first time.



Cassidy Aged 8 gave the series 4 stars

‘It is about a cat named Pelle who had his tail bitten of by a rat. but he doesn’t let that stop him from being brave and exploring the world.’

I especially like it that the mean tom cat Mans doesn’t succeed in being mean to Pelle and all the people in the town stick up for Pelle.

it is a wonderful series with plenty of adventures along the way I would recommend it to anyone but especially if you have felt bullied.
