Children's Doncaster Read For October and November
Author Andy Stanton
From the author of the Mr Gum books, The Story of Matthew Buzzington and Sterling and the Canary comes Danny McGee Drinks the Sea.
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.
