Lotta’s Easter Surprise/Visst är Lotta en glad unge

Easter would have been super boring on Troublemaker Street if it weren’t for Lotta! Vasilis, who owns the candy store, is moving back to Greece, and Jonas and Mia-Maria barely even have time to dress up as witches for Easter. But Lotta, who is such a happy kid, prepares a really nice surprise in the garden!
