Men and women are different. That is a lesson we learn in nursery school. And Ole Könnecke's miniature world of sandboxes shows us what's going on every day in adult life. Men want to impress women, and, following the principle, the bigger the better, Anton drags everything he owns to the playground. But because girls are different, they are less than impressed. They simply ignore Anton – because women place a value on emotions.
The end of the line' No, because when Anton stops trying to be the big guy and shows some weakness, the girls finally look at him, comfort him and let him join their games.
A true book about the complicated relationships of men and women – with good news: love and friendship are not predictable. They simply happen. And sometimes they do so when you've almost given up on them.
