This book ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ was the 1st one by Roald Dahl that I read. I remembered that it was very entertaining and touching. It made me want to read book written by him more and more. I don’t know why the publisher didn’t use the illustration that always comes together with Roald Dahl’s books. But its pictures were designed and drawn by Thai artists. Its Thai name wasn’t directly translated from the English title, but Thai title could be translated back to English as ‘Do you want to have father like mine?’ This book was published back in 1988 as the 4th time. Its price was 45 Baht (around 1.5 USD).
