Black Lego

Big brother Peter is allergic to everything, and little sister Johanne has a mind like no-one else. Thomas loves them both a lot, but it’s so difficult to make allowances for them all the time.

And then there’s Grandma. She’s really helpful – that’s what she says, in any case. Thomas isn’t so sure. If she is, then she helps everyone else but him. More to the point, he’s not sure if he even really likes her. But you can’t say that. And everything just gets more difficult when he tries to save her by saying something that he doesn’t really mean.
