Topic: Danny the Champion of the World / The Silver Sword

After my 7-year old has just devoured 'Danny the Champion of the World' over the weekend I've ordered 'The Silver Sword'

Both these were my favourite pre-teen books so I thought I'd give him the benefit of my experience

He's still not keen on Leeds United mind...........

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Same here.  All my kids have read it.  It was my favourite too.  I liked the bit where the Doctor's wife gave him pork pie with egg in.  I still think of that bit when I eat that....... Which is often.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Great book, read it myself and enjoyed reading to my kids. Think we've done most the Roald Dhal books.

I liked Alan Garner books as a kid.
