Series: Anton Can Do Magic, Anton and the Battle
Translated from German. Anton bumps into Luke and a battle for dominance begins. They compete over who is the strongest, fastest and loudest. “I can carry a whole piano. I’m much stronger than you. And much, much louder!” says Luke. The sparring accumulates until Luke threatens to “drop a bomb.” Anton threatens to retaliate with a larger bomb as a small puppy enters the scene. After all their demonstrations of bravado, the two boys hurriedly climb a tree. While waiting for the dog to leave the boys debate who is the hungriest and who can eat the largest cake. Once they are safe from the scary dog they rush home, competing over who can run the fastest.
