“It was great.
“Do you know what Danny knows to be true? That his dad is the best dad in the world. He can make anything seem exciting and magical. They are a real team, Danny and his dad, living on their own in a caravan just outside Danny's dad's service station.
Do you want to know something about Danny's dad? He has a secret passion and that secret is going to bring about some particularly crazy adventures for them both. There may be a villianous, crabby man down the road who gets his comeuppance and there will be no lack of congratulations for Danny when he comes up with the best idea his dad has ever heard.
I am going to spoil something for you, since this is something I wished I'd known when I started reading this to my nine year old son. The dad's secret passion? It's POACHING. Stealing other people's animals. Um, yeah. I just don't know how I feel about that. My son loved it, it is really a beautifully told story, I just felt so bad getting excited about Danny and his dad stealing. I love Dahl's writing and the relationship between Danny and his dad is absolutely fantastic. Even Danny's magnificent idea made my son laugh outloud. I just was disappointed with the plot - perhaps if I was British I wouldn't have minded so much :)”
“I think it is a interesting book on how his dad always goes to the bushes to catch birds”jessica2011 wrote this review Monday, April 2, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“My favourite book as a child. The story of Danny and his "hero" Father who together hatch a fantastic plan to hijack the rich farmers pheasant shoot. A tale of childhood innocence, happy days and the love between father and his son. I read my son's copy again last year and the memories of my childhood came flooding back.”Simon Winslow wrote this review Friday, March 30, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

One night Danny wakes up and his dad was not there and finds out about his dad secrets. His dad was going to make his biggest haul yet, but he need some help so they put some sleeping meds in rasins so they fall asleep. His dad went and did that but Danny woke up and his dad wasn't home yet so he went and looked for him and foung him in a hole with a broken arm. It was a challenge but they made it home and they were set.”blake bachmeier wrote this review Saturday, March 24, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
