Publisher's Summary

The fifteenth fostering memoir by Cathy Glass.

Danny was petrified and clung to me in desperation as I carried him to my car. Trapped in his own dark world, he couldn't understand why his parents no longer loved or wanted him and were sending him away.

While Danny's parents have everything they could wish for in material terms, they are unable to care for their only child. This is where Cathy comes in. On a cold, dark evening, Danny finds a place in her home where he can be himself, away from his parents' impatience and frustration. Often in his own little world, six-year-old Danny finds it difficult to communicate, finding solace in his best friend and confidant George - his rabbit.

Cathy quickly becomes aware of his obsessively meticulous behaviour in addition to his love of patterns - he sees them everywhere and creates them at any opportunity - in his play and also with his food. She realises that patience is the key to looking after Danny as well as her well-tried strategies for managing children's behaviour.

With his father refusing to cooperate, it becomes increasingly likely that Danny will be living with Cathy permanently until she gets an opportunity to speak her piece.

    "Another great book"

    I absolutely love the Cathy Glass books, I love the fact that they are all done with the same voice as you can really imagine that this is the voice of Cathy Glass.

    "Let down by narration"

    As other books by Cathy Glass this one is a sad and touching story. As a prospective adopter I found them helpful and would recommend to read/listen them along with special literature.

    Narration however is what lets this and other books down. Not that it's bad it's just not fitting. It sound like the book read for 6 year olds.

    "A very good lecture"
    What did you like most about Saving Danny?

    At the beginning I was thinking of returning this book and when I got into it I was captivated by it. In fact, it gives a lot of leads how to deal not only with children but also with adults. I liked the language of Mrs Glass where in a "novel" type of expressions she transported quite a lot of psychology. I find it very useful.


    What about Denica Fairman’s performance did you like?

    I liked her reading and I noticed that all books of Mrs Glass are read by her. I wonder if some of them might have been read by a male voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not at the beginning, but some 1/3 into it I got captivated.


    Any additional comments?

    Has not only a psychological dimension but human as well.

    "Another excellent production"

    Classic Cathy Glass writing, it draws you in and you feel the whole range of emotions.

    Classic performance from Danica Fairman, she really draws you into the story. I can't imagine anyone else narrating for Cathy, the partnership is perfect.
