Narrator Eric Mok strikes just the right tone as 11-year-old Danny Chung in this sweet middle-grade audiobook. Danny's parents spring a surprise on him: His grandmother from China, whom he's never met, arrives to live with them in England. She's going to be sharing Danny's room, and they can barely communicate with each other. Mok delivers Nai Nai's mix of Chinese and English and captures Danny's frustration at being on Nai Nai duty when he'd rather be drawing comics with his best friend, Ravi. But the more misadventures Danny and Nai Nai get up to together, the more he comes to appreciate his grandmother, who turns out to be, among other things, a whiz at bingo. It's a satisfying intergenerational story that balances the silly and the serious. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
