Summary: Danny’s life seems perfect: his home is a gypsy caravan, he’s the youngest car mechanic around, and his best friend is his dad, who never runs out of wonderful stories to tell. And when Danny discovers his father’s secret, he’s off on the adventure of a lifetime. Here’s Roald Dahl’s famous story about a 9-year-old boy, his dad, and a daring and hilarious pheasant-snatching expedition. Just as important, it’s the story of the love between a boy and his father who, in Danny’s own words, is “the most marvelous and exciting father a boy ever had.” (GoodReads.com)
Review: This is one of my favorite books by one of my most favorite authors. This book is such a departure from Roald Dahl's other books (Matilda, Charlie and Great Elevator, The BFG). This book is about a young boy and his relationship with his dad. It's set in a little village in England. I loved the sense of wonder and companionship between Danny and his father. It's not a comedy or an action book, but it held my attention from start to stop. Highly Recommended.
