About the book

Maddy Yip is happy in life, until she realises that everyone has a talent - except for her! Maddy is determined to change that, with the help of her brothers, bewildered grandad and her best friend Dev. There are disastrous attempts at breakdancing and playing the recorder, revolting cakes, and a magic disappearing trick that ends up with an escaped guinea pig. This is very funny and full of Cheung’s cartoonlike illustrations. An entertaining read that also gives an insight into a different culture.
