“How strong was dad anyway?” “He was the strongest man I ever saw. He could pull an aircraft forward all on his own. He stood in front of the car and lifted it above his head in one go.”
Luuk‘s father was a true hero, or at least that‘s what his mum says. In contrast, Luuk is skinny and small, and everyone used to call him red dwarf because of his hair colour. The fearless Minke protects Luuk in his new school class, but he would much rather put his own muscles to use. What he needs is a strong role model who can help him solve his problems. He‘s fed up with Mum‘s stories, so he goes off in search of his father.
