Danny Champion Of The Worldby Roald Dahl - brilliantly adapted into a stage play for children to perform in schools.

Could you be Danny, or his dad, or even red-faced Mr Victor Hazell? Danny thinks his dad is the most marvellous and exciting father a boy could wish for. Now you can join in their daring and devilish plots with these fun-to-perform plays adapted by David Wood.

David Wood is very well known in children's theatre (most recently for Goodnight Mister Tom).

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. His books continue to be bestsellers, despite his death in 1990, and worldwide book sales are over 100 million!
