Where Dani Goes, Happy Follows

Rose Lagercrantz and Eva Eriksson

(Gecko Press)

Dani’s teacher calls her ‘Happy Dani.’ She’s not as happy as Cushion (sometimes known as Alexander) who longs to sit in Ella’s chair, next to Dani. Dani isn’t happy when Dad goes to Rome and she has to stay with Grandma and Grandad. She’s happy at the thought of being a ‘best present’, an event, to celebrate Ella’s birthday, however. It demands a big journey on her own. She can manage, can’t she? After all, ‘Where Dani goes, happy follows’… Yet what is really demanded on her should she take such a huge step? Thereafter, what about the people she’ll meet? Furthermore, what if things do not go as she expects?
It seems as though we’ve our hearts in our mouths, as we journey along with Dani. We’ve been doing this for a while, ever since My Happy Life. Therefore, we know Dani, her friendship with Ella and the deep aching void she feels since Ella’s family moved to Northbrook. However, would we take on such a mission as this? Bookwagon loves this series for newer chapter book readers. It is respectful, accessible and thoroughly engaging. Therefore, it seems that like every other reader, we suggest Where Dani Goes, Happy Follows.
