Danny, the Champion of the World

”These things are big secrets”… “Very big secrets indeed. But I reckon if my father could tell them to me, then maybe I can tell them to you. Would you like me to do that?” There’s nobody Danny loves as much as his father. Together they live, just the two of them, in a gypsy caravan behind the filling-station that Danny’s father runs. Then, one day, Danny’s father lets him in on a secret, the deep, dark secret of his career as a poacher and his very own secret methods and even promises to take Danny out when he gets older. Poaching is a dangerous business though, particularly when you’re on the land of the odious, rich landowner, Mr Hazell. Danny and his father find themselves and their livelihoods at risk from the domineering Mr Hazel who likes nothing better than keeping the whole community under his thumb. Then, as the day of the annual shooting party approaches, Danny comes up with a daring plan to put Mr Hazel in his place but can Danny and his father pull it off and save the day? Waterstones invites you to share in one of the most memorable and touching father-son stories of all time, from the pen of one of our most beloved storytellers. Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favourite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy. Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s number one storyteller. One of Britain’s finest living illustrators, Quentin Blake has put pictures to more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. As an author he has written and illustrated a number of bestselling children’s books including The Green Ship and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
