About the Book

Not to be confused with Danny, the Champion of the World by the same author.

The Champion of the World is a brilliant gem of a short story from Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail.

In The Champion of the World, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a funny story about low cunning in the country. Here, a pair of poachers discover a foolproof way to bag pheasants . . .

Excerpts

All day, in between serving customers, we had been crouching over the table in the office of the filling-station, preparing the raisins.
