Danny The Champion of the World
Written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, Danny the Champion of the World is a heart-warming story about a boy, his father and their ongoing battle with a rich snob.
Danny lives in a gipsy caravan with his father, who is the most marvellous and exciting dad any boy has ever had. However, the land around them belongs to Mr Victor Hazell, an old blue-faced baboon with tiny piggy eyes.
After finally having enough, Danny and his father concoct a daring plot to give Victor the biggest shock of his life. They just have to make sure they don't get caught...
With a refreshed jacket to celebrate 100 years of Roald Dahl, this is a classic tale from the master storyteller full of all the traits that have made him so enduringly popular - villains getting their comeuppance, crazy tales and heroes that you instantly love.
