Danny The Champion Of The World, by Roald Dahl. Quentin Blake (Illustrator)
Danny has a life any boy would love—his home is a gypsy caravan, he's the youngest master car mechanic around, and his best friend is his dad, who never runs out of wonderful stories to tell.
But one night Danny discovers a shocking secret that his father has kept hidden for years. Soon Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible plot ever attempted against nasty Victor Hazell, a wealthy landowner with a bad attitude.
Can they pull it off? If so, Danny will truly be the champion of the world.
