This is a book to cherish, to reread and savour. Great value.
We bought this because we'd borrowed it from the library and loved it so much, wanted to reread and reread. My son, who's 8, has done just that. It's a great story about a single dad and his son and the scrapes they get into trying to poach some pheasants. As with all Roald Dahl books, it's fabulously written, very funny at times and a great story. We live in the Chilterns, not far from where Roald Dahl spent much of his life and some woods and farm lanes around here remind me a lot of this book. Unlike some Roald Dahl works, Danny the Champion of the World is plausible, rather than set in a fictional world inhabited by giant peaches, giants and glass elevators. Perhaps that's why it's my favourite Roald Dahl, though I think the kids prefer the whackiness of some of his more wildly imaginative books. My son favours the BFG.
