Anton and Other Squares

Gudrun Skretting

Winner of ARK Children’s Book Prize 2017

Nominated to the children’s book prize “BOKSLUKER PRIZE 2017”

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 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.
