Synopsis

A hilariously anarchic tale from the inimitable Andy Stanton, author of Mr Gum, and much loved illustrator Neal Layton.

Can a boy drink the sea? Surely it's impossible! But Danny McGee does just that - and now he has his sights on other things. Soon he's swallowing trees, flies, fleas, peas, mountains ... where will it end?!

Andy Stanton has won a string of awards for his Mr Gum books, including the Red House Children's Book Award, the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, and the Blue Peter Book Award for Best Book With Pictures.

Neal Layton is the multi-award-winning illustrator of the Emily Brown books.

We loved this rhyming slice of brilliant silliness and surreality. Andy (Mr Gum) Stanton and Neal Layton have teamed up to fabulous effect, creating a future read-aloud classic.

Phil May Read it Daddy

This is a picture book to delight readers young - and old, and deserves to become a staple of storytime, whether in the classroom or at bedtime.
