Anton and Other Squares

Anton og andre flokkdyr

Anton is back!
Anton has it all set out for middle school. His plan is to blend in, avoid standing out in any way, a small part of the large herd of students. But of course, things are not going according to the plan. Based on a complete misunderstanding, all of a sudden Anton is considered one the cool guys, an image he has to struggle really, really hard to maintain. For Anton, surviveing middle school is like an animal’s battle for survival. He must decide who he wants to be: an ordinary gnu amongst gnus, or a lion who eats gnus for breakfast.
