When I Am Happiest

My happy life and My heart is laughing are the first two books about Dani, her dad and best friend Ella. They offer a wonderful insight into the day-to-day life of a young girl as she begins to find her way in the world. In Rose Lagercrantz’s latest story, When I am happiest it begins with the second-to-last day of school. Dani is so happy that she begins to write a book all about how happy she is.

However, suddenly Dani’s world is turned upside down when her father has a serious accident and ends up in hospital. Dani must then overcome her biggest hurdle yet. There is both a softness and simplicity to Dani’s story and as a reader I couldn’t help but be moved by Dani’s situation and how she deals with whatever life throws at her. As with the previous books, this is another winning combination of writer and illustrator. Short chapters and a perfect sized text, gorgeous line drawings on every two page spread, make this ideal for readers of five-to-seven year olds new to chapter books. This is a heart-warming story that will leave readers with a warm fuzzy feeling.

From the back cover:

It’s the second-to-last day of school and Dani’s so happy she could write a book about it!

In fact, that’s exactly what she’s done, although it’s not quite finished yet. Now the book is in her backpack with all the other things she has to take home before the summer break.

But then Dani gets some bad news. Something serious has happened. How wills he ever be happy again? How will she ever be able to finish writing her book?

Sometimes a good friend is all you need to make your heart start laughing again.
