Anton has a magic hat. A real one. Anton wants to do some magic. He wants to make something disappear... First Anton tries to make a tree vanish, but it's too big. He manages to make a bird disappear, and even his friend Lukas. But where did Lukas go? 'There are constant surprises throughout this story, and lovely irony and tension between Anton and the reader.
