Life According To Dani

By Rose Lagercrantz
Illustrated by Eva Eriksson

A stand-alone follow-up to the acclaimed and beloved chapter books that began with New York Times Notable Book My Happy Life

It’s Dani’s first summer vacation—and the best ever! She is staying on an island with Ella, her best friend in the world. Dad is still in hospital but he calls every day, and Ella and Dani stay busy building huts, fishing, exploring, and swimming. Then Dad turns up, but with his nurse too! This is not the visit anyone had imagined. This warm, funny story allows space for strong emotions, as Dani struggles with the idea of her father’s new girlfriend, but does so with a light touch.

  • A new story in the acclaimed and beloved chapter book series
  • Warm and heartfelt books about Dani, her dad and her ongoing friendship with Ella
  • These stories are perfect for beginning readers, full of real emotion, human behaviour, happiness—and how life really is
