Danny, the Champion of the World audiobook is a 1975 children’s audiobook by Roald Dahl.

The plot Summary
It 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. Danny thinks his dad is the most marvelous and exciting father any boy ever had – but Danny’s dad has a very big secret.
This secret leads them both into the strangest adventure of their lives, and a daring plot that makes Danny the champion of the world. The book was first published in 1975 in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. and in the United Kingdom by Jonathan Cape.
Peter Serafinowicz is an award-winning English actor, writer, voice artist, comedian, and director. He has appeared in films such as Shaun of the Dead and Couples Retreat.
As a voice artist, his roles have ranged from Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace to Driver Dan in the CBeebies program StoryTrain.
Danny, the Champion of the World Audiobook Mp3 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.
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. Definitely in my top five.
