Eager to start fourth grade, Sune is suddenly confronted by the worst thing imaginable: another kid named Sune! And now our hero must go by the nickname Sune Two. How can a kid keep his dignity?

Sune vs. Sune is a heartwarming comedy interspersed with frequent scenes of epic sci-fi fantasy, mirroring the mind of a young person starting 4th grade or of a middle aged parent wishing he were a rock star. Sune’s loving but hapless family cope with daily humilities--their beat-up family car, boring jobs, and now Sune’s rivalry with a new boy also named Sune. When Sune’s secret crush Sophie drifts towards the new Sune, original Sune amps up his imagination and antics to win over his classmates. Fear of inadequacy, of not being “enough” drives increasingly outrageous behavior with a fast-paced crescendo. Based on a bestselling Swedish children’s book series. Recommended for Age 10+ (Deb Girdwood)
