About the Book
Like most other boys his age, Sander loves football, chocolate ice cream and sleeping in on Sundays. Sander's mother is also as normal as can be - at least up until the day she shrinks to the size of a little Lego-man. From then onward, incredible things start happening to Sander and his mum, as well as the stray dog Muri, the invisible boy Aksel, the colurful Uncle Allan, and a society of ladies who are obsessed with their teddy bears.
"L'auteur peint un petit monde délicat et allègre où l'absurde se dispute au réel, la tendresse au burlesque."
