A truly joyful read'Press & Journal**********Danny Malooley's life is falling apart. He's a single parent with an eleven-year-old son, Will, who hasn't spoken since the death of his mother in a car crash fourteen months ago.

He's being pursued by a dodgy landlord for unpaid rent and he's just lost his job.

Struggling to find work, and desperate for money, Danny decides to do what anyone in his position would do.

He becomes a dancing panda. After seeing street performers in his local park raking it in, he spends his last fiver on a costume... but the humiliation is worth it when Will finally speaks to him for the first time since his mother's death.

The problem is Will doesn't know that the panda is in fact his father, and Danny doesn't want to reveal his true identity in case Will stops talking again.

But Danny can't keep up the ruse forever... **********'Uplifting'Woman & HomeA surprising, laugh-out-loud and uplifting story of a father and son reconnecting in the most unlikely of circumstances.
