Danny the Champion of the World

by Roald Dahl

{ 1975 | Penguin | 224 pgs }

Instead of doing something sensible like going to sleep one night, I picked up this book and settled down. What is there to say but that it was fantastic?

Have you still not read it? Go!

    This is my favorite of Dahl’s books. While his fantasies are fun, I think the struggles and triumphs of these realistic people are more engaging and heartwarming.

      When I first started the book and his dad hesitantly told him about poaching, I thought maybe he was just saying that to cover up something more sinister. Or just to be an interesting dad. I was surprised when that turned out to be the real story!
