Though the theme of poaching may not be the best one, this is still a great book on the number one way to be a great dad: spend quality time with your children...

By Adam Vernali on Dec 3 2005
Format: Paperback
This novel is extremely high-quality. "Danny the Champion of the World" is a grand paperback novel and extremely explanatory. The author is Roald Dahl When Danny's father is stuck in the hole the keepers dug to catch poachers. That's why Danny's father was home so late because he was poaching pheasants. That was an exciting moment in the novel.
The plot of the novel is to get back at Mr. Victor Hazel because he thinks he is the king of the town that he lives in. That's when Danny thinks of a way to get back at Mr. Hazel. The way is to use Danny' s fathers sleeping pills and put one forth of the sleeping pills and to put them into raisins and throw them to the pheasants. So when the pheasant eat the raisins after a little while when the pheasants go up to nest the pills will start to work and they will fall out of the trees. Then Danny and his dad go and pick up the pheasant. That also was an extremely astounding section in the novel. The characters are Danny and William (Danny's dad) those are the main characters. The reason I'm not telling the rest is because there are too many to name. The setting is somewhere in England, 1955. Danny lives in the country with his dad. Danny's dads name is William he is a mechanic and runs a filling station. Danny and his dad live in an old gypsy caravan that is behind the work shop.
The illustrations were just phenomenal. I thought that Quentin Blake was just your normal illustrator but I was wrong he is just a great no not a great but a fantastic illustrator. I think he is just one of the best illustrators I have ever heard of.
The action in this novel is so action packed every night I just wanted to keep reading. Every night my teacher gave me this book to read I wished we could finish the book it was so excellent.

Dear Reader(s),
This book is about a boy named Danny, who lives with his dad. His dad has a secret that is out and Danny is on a wild adventure to stop Mr. Hazel from finding out the secret. Mr. Hazel is a rich man with many pheasants, who's face turns red when he finds out Danny's father's secret.
This book is about the bond between father and son. There is only one thing standing in between Danny's bond with his Dad and that's the secret. We recommend this book because we like it ourselves. Be prepared, this book will take you on an adventure of a life time! But we warn you, Mr.Hazel isn't so friendly when he finds out the secret.
Our readers have some opinions about the book.
Stu- it was a good book because it was funny.
Zach- at the begining of the book I liked the plot, but I wished it would of changed at the end, more twisted.
Janel- I liked the book, it was funny, but when you learn about Danny's Dad's secret it gets better.
Savannah- It was boring at the beginning, but it got exciting towards the middle and the end.

I read this book to my son before bed. I think it was a great book! I love the way a son and father work together in it to accomplish their goal. The only issue I had with the book is that the plot revolves around stealing, other than that it's great.

This book is an awesome adventure story about Danny and his father. I grew up without my real dad in my life, and this book was a positive "scapegoat" for me, during many difficult times in my childhood.
I recommend this book to all youngsters. It will give them a good feeling of what togetherness means, as far as family is concerned.

I recommend this.... TO EVERYONE. It's a great book. It has action, adventure, and comedy. Danny has been motherless since he was really little. So his dad had to be mom and dad at the same time. Plus it has family, hunting, and just plain old fun. So I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did. That's my review on Danny the Champion of the World.
