Danny the Champion of the World Audiobook Free
Danny, the Champion of the World is a 1975 children’s book by Roald Dahl. Like Fantastic Mr Fox, this story was partially inspired by the Buckinghamshire countryside where Roald Dahl lived.
The plot centers on Danny, a young English boy, and his father, William, who live in a Gypsy caravan fixing cars for a living and partake in poaching pheasants.
Can Danny and his father outsmart the villainous Mr. Hazell?
Danny has a life any boy would love – his home is a gypsy caravan, he’s the youngest master car mechanic around, and his best friend is his dad, who never runs out of wonderful stories to tell.
But one night Danny discovers a shocking secret that his father has kept hidden for years. Soon Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible plot ever attempted against nasty Victor Hazell, a wealthy landowner with a bad attitude.
Can they pull it off? If so, Danny will truly be the champion of the world.
Danny the Champion of the World Audiobook Mp3 was adapted into a made-for-TV movie in 1989 by Thames Television. It was directed by Gavin Millar and starred Jeremy Irons as William and his son, Samuel, as Danny, with Robbie Coltrane as Mr. Hazell.
I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a kid (the squirrels! the Oompa-Loompas!). But this is the Roald Dahl audiobook that has stayed with me, and a lot of other people I’ve met along the way. Like any really outstanding kid’s book, it has a lot to say to, and about, adults.
This story is a little different than other Dahl stories in that it’s just a series of events in a boy’s life with his father. I get the impression Dahl was modeling the father after a father figure in his own life, and it is nice to hear a man show true affection for his son. Too often, British authors, have children be afterthoughts or they don’t have good relationships with their parents. This story is kind of the opposite of Peter Pan to me. It’s one of my new favorites, and I will be reading it to my grandchildren.
Narrator: Peter Serafinowicz does a marvelous job reading. It’s like having someone read you a bedtime story. He’s one of my new favorite narrators. He did an excellent job. Who’s voice fits the story wonderfully.
