Sep 28, 2007Oddly to some, this still stands as my favorite Roald Dahl book. It's hard for me to pinpoint why, since it's my opinion and I hate examining my opinions too closely, but to take a swing at it:
Nov 18, 2016ENGLISH (Danny the Champion of the World) / ITALIANO
Among all the Roald Dahl's novels, probably this is the one I liked less. Not my daughter, however. She always likes each Dahl's novel.
Di tutte le opere di Roald Dahl che ho letto a mia figlia, forse questa è quella che mi è piaciuta di meno. Non a mia figlia però. A lei ogni libro di Dahl piace sempre.

Jan 23, 2017A re-read with Neo over the last while. I wanted to share my original review, altered with some of Neos sentiments in the latter part.
Feb 13, 2020"Most of the really exciting things we do in our lives scare us to death, they wouldn't be exciting, if they didn't."
Sep 15, 2012I think this is my favorite Roald Dahl book. I've reread it at least a dozen times since I was a child, and it's just marvelous. I love the bond the father has with his son, I love the drawings, I love the coziness of the caravan, and I love the great poaching adventure that the father and son embark on. Three cheers for Danny!
Mar 29, 2017I am currently trying to read all of Roald Dahl's books this year.
Sep 18, 2017Simply brilliant. Read this at school back in the 1980's. What a wonderful mind Ronald Dahl had. I remember how I envied Danny when he got to drive the vehicle. This was adapted into a film with Jeremy Irons I think. Film was good too🐯👍.
Dec 03, 2015"Danny the Champion of the World", like most of Roald's work, can be seen in two different ways. Danny, 10 years old, lives with his father in gypsy caravan behind a filling station in rural England. His father is a mechanic and teaches Danny very early how to rebuild engines and be a brilliant mechanic. But his father has another hobby that was secret to Danny. When Danny finds out about it, his father brings him along. Family bonding, much happiness. Very sweet book.
Feb 23, 2020Goodbye Roald Dhal. I thought I liked you, but apparently I only liked Quentin Blake.

Jan 12, 2017A heartfelt read.
Sep 27, 2007I got this book in 1988, when I was eight or nine years old, and it was a dear favourite of mine. The story of Danny and his fantastic dad, and their life in the old gypsy caravan by the petrol pumps and garage - it was at once a whole new other world, and something very near and dear to me.
Apr 20, 2016Before the dystopian hit The Road, there was another father-son relationship hit, but for another audience altogether.

Sep 30, 2015For the record, this was not my favorite Roald Dahl book. Something about the poaching seemed a little less "Robin Hood" and a little more... Uh... "sour grapes" than what I was hoping for. But whatever. It was still good.
Feb 10, 2008Despite having read pretty much all of Roald Dahl's other books, I had not read this one until recently. I don't know why. It was hugely popular when I was in second and third grade, but among the boys, and I had sort of dismissed it as a "boy's book." It is in fact a wonderful, lyrical book, some of Dahl's best writing. And it's not just a heart-warming tale of a boy and his father. Nope. It's a how-to for poaching pheasants. Brilliant.
Jul 30, 2019This is one of the very few books by Roald Dahl that I hadn't read before, and I'm so glad I didn't miss out on it! It's a brilliant story about the loving relationship between Danny and his father.
May 27, 2018I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a kid (the squirrels! the Oompa-Loompas!). But this is the Roald Dahl book that has stayed with me, and a lot of other people I've met along the way. Like any really outstanding kids' book it has a lot to say to, and about, adults.
Jun 13, 2015This is one of my favourite Roald Dahl books. It's simply the story of a boy, Danny, and his father, who is a pheasant poacher. That's it. It's one of his least crazy books and doesn't involve magic at all. Admittedly there is a huge madcap caper at the end, but it never truly pushes the boundaries of believability.
Jun 10, 2019Reading a book out loud is very different to reading it in your head. Characters escape through your mouth rather than infiltrating your eyes. I heartily recommend it from time to time.
Aug 31, 2009A bit far-fetched. I'd passed by this book many times before and it never caught my interest on account of it being long and the title not being more discriptive. You could be the champion of the world through many things; doing something exceedingly difficult or impossible, inventing something that could cure world hunger, or something else equally huge. Drugging two hundred pheasants is not exactly what I had in mind. All that crap Danny's father talks about poaching being an art. Who in their A bit far-fetched.

Drugging two hundred pheasants is not exactly what I had in mind. All that crap Danny's father talks about poaching being an art. Who in their right minds would consider stealing an art? I mean, if it were for the greater good I can see about doing it at all, but because you YEARN to do it? What's so fun about trying to steal a couple of stupid birds when the consequences include going to jail or getting shot? If you ask me, this might've been a bit more interesting if Danny HAD landed in jail. But he didn't, and it's not. It was boring. Long and boring, the worst of combinations. I didn't exactly hate it, but it's not something I would go out of my way to re-read. ...more
Mar 23, 2007My God! this was what i said to myself; this man teaching his son who to steal from others? but then, some more pages . . . hummm . . . and some more pages . . . My God! this book is lovely, this is what all parents must to read, they do not know how react towards thier childeren, and this book teach them how . . . i love it . . .
Oct 14, 2017I really enjoyed this story. I loved the overarching message, and I loved the relationship between father and son. It was entertaining, endearing and funny. This was one of the Roald Dahl stories that I hadn't read as a child, so it was nice to read it with fresh and new eyes, having zero expectations.
Dec 11, 2013I loved this book as a kid and the re-read as an adult did not disappoint. In fact, started last night and I read it in just two sittings.
