Danny, the Champion of the World is one of Roald Dahl’s most popular children’s books.

The story is about Danny, a young boy, and his father, William, who live in a gypsy caravan fixing cars for a living and partake in in poaching pheasants, and the plot is centred on the moral dilemma faced by good people who do ‘bad things’, and ultimately shows that one can bring about change by small actions. The book was made into a film in 1989 and has been translated into dozens of languages.
