'We need to help them,' says Sanna as they are eating supper. 'Yes of course,' says Dad. Mum has an idea: 'There must be many children at school who have bikes they have grown out of. Perhaps the reception centre can use them?
Sanna got a new bicycle for her birthday, but next morning it is gone! It turns out that a boy from the asylum centre has taken it. He wants to give it to his sister, who is so unhappy. When Sanna and her dad go to the centre to fetch the bicycle back, Sanna sees how sad the children are, and she really wants to do something to help them. But she can't really give them her bike. Then Mum has a good idea.
Gro Røsth has written many books for new readers, Sandra Pliny-Lockertsen is making her debut as an illustrator. The result is a heart-warming and recognisable story which has suddenly become unhappily topical.
