Publisher's Summary

Can Danny and his father outsmart the villainous Mr. Hazell? Danny has a life any boy would love - his home is a gypsy caravan, he's the youngest master car mechanic around, and his best friend is his dad, who never runs out of wonderful stories to tell. But one night Danny discovers a shocking secret that his father has kept hidden for years. Soon Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible plot ever attempted against nasty Victor Hazell, a wealthy landowner with a bad attitude. Can they pull it off? If so, Danny will truly be the champion of the world.

A book for all ages!

Every Roald Dahl book moves me each and every time I read them! This one is a treat, and should be required for all parents. So many take aways. Love.

Wonderfully read, timeless story

My 5 year old son wouldn't stop listening, engaging story of adventure and a healthy father/son relationship. The reader has a very clear and mellow voice.

THE 2nd BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ!!!!!!!

I love how Danny and his Father have the perfect relationship and how his Father tells Danny great stories and how the stories he tells are about another book the author wrote.

I LOVE this book... great for adults (tears)

Had heard of this book but never read it before. I'm pretty hit and miss when it comes to Dahl, some of his works I love, some I just want to bitch slap him. THIS is a LOVE LOVE LOVE... it lacks the zany aspects of some of his work which often is over the top and annoying to adults... this one it feels almost autobiographical and while it promotes some illegal activities, it does a wonderful job or portraying a really loving relationship between a single father and his son... tears I'm telling you, tears...

Even better in SPOKEN WORD!

Growing up (I am 38) this book was alwasys mesmerizing- to have it "read to me" as am adult- brings back it memorable sparkle!
