In our new fast feature, we recommend a terrific title in 60 words – ish.
Budding artist Danny can’t believe it when the ‘surprise’ his parents promise turns out to be his Chinese Granny – who’s moving into his bedroom.
Entertaining his elderly room-mate may not be how Danny planned to spend his holidays, but while life with Nai Nai can be unsettling – it’s never dull. Full of heart and humour, this story celebrates under-appreciated treasures; lychees, bingo, Maths – and family.
