Tom has stolen "her" chocolates (la)Tom has stolen "to her" chocolates (LUI)
Please help me
It is voler quelque chose à quelqu'un. In the example you cite, ses bonbons is the direct object and lui (replacing à Elsa) is the indirect object.
You can't translate à as "to". There is no one-to-one correspondence of the French à to a single English preposition.
Thank you so much!after your reply I was able to make sense of it, I also found more here
