As part of Read Manchester’s See Myself in Books Festival, primary schools are invited to meet children’s author Maisie Chan, who is the author of Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths. Eleven-year-old Danny Chung loves drawing – more than maths, which is what he is ‘supposed’ to be good at. He also loves having his own room, so he is put out when his non-english speaking, ex-maths champion grandmother comes to stay from China. Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards, this debut novel challenges pre-conceptions and celebrates differences.
