Professional reviews

"Narrator Peter Serafinowicz delivers this lesser-known work by childrenÕs author Roald Dahl. DannyÕs best friend is his dad. They live in a trailer next to their workshop and filling station. When Danny turns 9, his dad reveals an intriguing secret: He comes from a long line of poachers. Serafinowicz evokes the love between father and son as DannyÕs dad passes down his knowledge of auto mechanics and poaching techniques. The enthusiastic tone Serafinowicz gives the father is infectious, and DannyÕs voice is filled with wonder and pride at having such a fun dad. SerafinowiczÕs British accent adds to the ambiance of the English village where the story takes place. In all, Serafinowicz believably renders the emotional ties between father and son.
