Fantastic Mr. Fox is an interesting book about life in the countryside. Mr. and Mrs. Fox and their four cubs are trying to outwit three horrible farmers. The farmers are called Bunce, Boggis and Bean. They are really, really nasty. Roald Dahl paints vivid pictures of the three of them.
Mr. Fox is brave and very, very smart. He works together with Mr Badger, to keep their families safe underground, far from the diggers, shovels and guns of the nasty farmers. Mr Fox dug three tunnels, to each of the farm’s cellars and managed to steal all he could to feed all the animal families!
I don’t think Roald Dahl likes the farmers very much, as they get what they deserve. At the end of the book, they are all sitting around the foxhole in the pouring rain while the animals have a great big banquet underneath them.
All kids my age should find this book funny and hilarious and not too difficult to read on their own.
I grew up being read many of Roald Dahl’s highly entertaining and original stories each night in bed by My Mom. My favourites to this day are: Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Enormous Crocodile, The Twits, and George’s Marvellous Medicine. (All of which are on My Kindle) Roald Dahl is the biggest inspiration to becoming something of a poet and story writer, Myself. I can’t recommend his vast array of books enough to read to all children, and even to recommend to adults unfamiliar with his work. Such a fantastic author who made My childhood entertaining.
I didn't particularly 'get' Roald Dahl stories when I was younger (I was more of a Blyton girl) so I didn't look these out to read to my boys until the BFG was on at the cinema. I'm a strong believer that you should read the book before you see the film, so we read the BFG before we went and we were hooked from that point. This week we read Fantastic Mr Fox and the boys (6 and 9) loved it. I'll definitely be buying more Roald Dahl books :-)
Who doesn’t love Roald Dahl books? I felt I needed to revert to a childhood classic to break up the heavy books I had been reading lately. Fantastic Mr Fox was the perfect book to go for. It hasn’t aged and it equally as entertaining as it was when I read it as a child.
