    This book is amazing! The moral: Never Give Up. Danny hunts phesants with his Dad and the horrible mayor hates it. He is always rude to everyone. Read it and you will enjoy it. If I am honest, I prefer the film to the book!

    I think you should read this book because when you read the first chapter your head will never come up till the end…

    Danny has no mom but has a very interesting, bright, funny, smart, twinkly dad. They live in a gypsy caravan in the middle of a big field, near the woods. They have lots of amazing adventures and i reccomend this book to everyone who likes imagination and humour!
