Danny McGee Drinks the Sea

Written by Andy Stanton

Illustrated by Neal Layton

Danny McGee Drinks the Sea 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.
