Synopsis

From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG.

Danny lives in a caravan with his father, the most marvellous and exciting father any boy ever had.

All the land around them belongs to Mr Victor Hazell, a rich snob with a great glistening beery face and tiny piggy eyes. Nobody likes him, not one-little bit.
So one day, Danny and his father concoct a daring plot that will give the old blue-faced baboon Victor Hazell the greatest shock of his life - so long as they don't get caught . . .

External Reviews

"One of the most tender depictions of the father-son relationship in literature, Dahl’s classic adventure of resourceful poachers and avaricious landowners is filled with love and affection as well as the traditional grotesques. A hymn both to the countryside and the bonds of family, Danny, the Champion of the World remains a consistent delight."  - Waterstones.
