A Scrumpdiddlyumptious Tale Not to Be Missed!

This book is actually meant for children, but I couldn't help picking it up to see what the champion of the world would be like. The book captivated me from start to finish, with Danny, a little boy with a wonderful father who raised him single-handedly. The tale brings me lots of joy to remember what it was like with my own father. The plot is clever, bringing lots of unexpected twists and turns. I especially enjoy the part where Mr. Hazell's shiny, silver car is completely ruined before the hunt by groggy pheasants. The story is indeed captured by Dahl well and although many might not consider Danny the champion of the world, he is a champion in his father's eyes.
