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.”

This, I must say, is a great achievement. Well, compared to Roald Dahl's other books, I thought this book was splendid. I really thought the other was boring. This one actually held my interest. A secret that Danny's father is keeping. A secret in which Danny is first shocked at but then later realizes he'd love to do it, and uses his brain to think of an idea to improve the way they do it. A great adventure, for sure, and exciting. =D
