My name is Maisie Chan and I am a British Chinese author who lives in Glasgow. I am SO happy that you can finally meet Danny Chung and his nai nai (paternal grandmother)! 


My debut novel has an intergenerational tale with a teeny tiny bit of maths, a plethora of comic artistry, and a lot of laughs.  I'm so lucky to have TWO versions of the book. I was so thrilled to have two covers and Danny's doodles drawn by two fantastic illustrators - Anh Cao and Natelle Quek


Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths is the U.K version and Danny Chung Sums It Up is the U.S version. They are the same story! Just different titles and covers. 


I'm a Bookseller 'One to watch' children's author

and my novel was one of the Guardian's Books of the Month for June 2021. I am the writer in residence at Peter Pan Moat Brae in Dumfries, which is the National Centre for Children's Literature and Storytelling in Scotland.
