Danny and his father live in an old gypsy caravan behind a filling-station, in the middle of the countryside. Danny thinks his father is "the most marvellous and exciting any boy ever had" but is shocked to discover that he has a deep, dark secret. Danny's father is a poacher – in the thick of night, he goes into Hazell's Wood to poach pheasants from the tyrannical Victor Hazell. As Mr. Hazell prepares to host the biggest shoot of the season, Danny and his father hatch a plan to poach all the pheasants from the woods.
