    I picked up this book from my library because I had read Matilda by Roald Dahl (It was wonderful). I didn't realize that I am picking a play adaptation until I started reading it. (This shows how madly I loved Matilda that I just read Roald Dahl and nothing else). Now, I am so happy that I did read this small play. It is a nice story where Danny, a 10 year old boy lives with his Dad in a caravan. One night, he finds out that his dad is hiding something from him.

Now, I am so happy that I did read this small play. It is a nice story where Danny, a 10 year old boy lives with his Dad in a caravan. One night, he finds out that his dad is hiding something from him. Dad initially thinks that Danny is too young to understand his secret. But when Danny confronts him, he says the truth. Good for Dad, because he turns out to be the champion of that secret. The father-son relationship is very touching and the depth of their love gets reflected in all their actions. All the other characters are very dramatic and I am sure kids would love it. The play part is the best. While reading this, I had just one thing in my mind - why didn't I see this book when I was in school. Me and my friends would have loved enacting this play. It has everything nicely explained - from props to costumes to lighting and music. A wonderful book and must read for children as well as their teachers and parents.

    I reacenly read roald dahl danny the chaimpion of the world. This book was about this boy when he was 4 months old and his mother died and the boy had to grow up with his dad. After all of this he was beating everyoning in everything. I really enjoyed this book because it was cool to see how he grew up. I recomed this book to everyone.

    Idk what the difference is (found out it's a plaY??) but I read the book version (if there are separate versions) and it's *fAnTaStiC* as are all books I've read by Roald Dahl.

    It's a totally amazing book, would want everyone to read it at least once though it's something written for kids and would even sound silly at times but there are many places where Dahl has written such touchy and realistic lines in a surprisingly easy way that you can't help but get amazed by them for a minute or two. At the same time he has described things so vividly that they penetrate into your mind the very first time you've read them, for instance here is one: "what made my dad appear so s It's a totally amazing book, would want everyone to read it at least once though it's something written for kids and would even sound silly at times but there are many places where Dahl has written such touchy and realistic lines in a surprisingly easy way that you can't help but get amazed by them for a minute or two. At the same time he has described things so vividly that they penetrate into your mind the very first time you've read them, for instance here is one: "what made my dad appear so serious was the fact that he never smiled with his mouth. He did it all with his eyes. He had brilliant blue eyes and when he thought of something funny, his eyes would flash and if you looked carefully, you could actually see a tiny little golden spark dancing in the middle of each eye. But the mouth never moved. I was glad my dad was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave a fake smile, because it's impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren't feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I've also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it, so watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you with his mouth but the eyes stay the same. It's sure to be bogus." So I guess you guys understand why I call this a must-read!!

    its childish a funny and would make a marvelous bed time read. The innocent adventures that we have always dreamed of. This is book is as much about growing up as it is about the fantasies that make our life worth living.

    I think this story is nice and the father is caring but also mischievous at the same time. Although he sneaks off and does stuff without his son he's still a good father I think this story is nice and the father is caring but also mischievous at the same time.
