Book cover[edit]

The book cover depicts Sune in a green sweater, hugging Maria Perez and Sophie.


Sune is eight years old and is about to begin the second grade at school in Sweden. There is also a new girl, Maria Perez, and Sune falls in love with her. The problem is that he still likes Sophie.

Sune is also visited by his cousin Algot. He also meets a guy, Affe, who tries to force Sune to join a gang of girl haters, which Sune doesn't want.

Sune also fears getting affected by his father becoming a "dirty old man", and the Andersson family will soon be expanded. At school, the children play theater, when Sune gets the girl role Little Red Riding Hood. He also ends up at the hospital, for a cecum removal surgery.

Sune also tries to run away from home.
