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.

    "Family Favorite!"

    My 5th grade teacher read this book to our class and it was my favorite! We have read it to our children and they loved it! We listened to the marvelous audio book on a road trip and my children now teenagers still laughed and loved every minute. The narrator has a lovely rich low voice that is a pleasure to listen to. in fact he's the best narrator I've ever heard!!!

    "Excellent."

    This story is amazing. It's not at all what I thought it would be, but it's so much more. It's a simple yet beautiful story of a boy and his dad.
