    Danny, The Champion Of The World

    There are several books that have stayed with me since childhood. Wherever I moved, and I moved a lot, those books got packed and unpacked. One of them is "Danny, the Champion of the World". It's full of heart and adventure and that sweet wackiness that comes from Dahl. I have...
