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.

A Wonderful Listen

I really enjoyed this book. For children to adults, the story is very entertaining. It was great fun to listen to. The narrator has a lovely voice and did the characterizations well.

The narrator was excellent

This was absolutely amazing. The narrator did an excellent job. Who’s voice fits the story wonderfully. I read this book when I was in sixth grade, and I really liked it. I started using Audible last year, and downloaded this book this year because it was one of my favorites. When I realized how wonderful the narrator did, I just wanted to listen to this book over and over again.

Excuse me. I meant his Voice fits the story perfectly. Sometimes my iPad makes dictation errors and I’m too lazy to correct them.
