Nine year-old Danny lives with his dad in a caravan at the back of the petrol station they run, where his father also works fixing cars. The pair live a contented life - which greatly aggravates a local businessman named Victor Hazell, who wants the land the petrol station is sited on. Victor tries every trick in the book to force them out of their home. So when Danny and his dad hear that Hazell is planning a shooting party to hunt the pheasants in his private wood, they hatch a scheme which will leave the mean-spirited bigwig very red-faced! This is a well-made and highly enjoyable version of the rightly much-loved children's book by Roald Dahl.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
