Fantastic Mr Fox

Boggis, Bunce and Bean are the meanest, foulest farmers in the world! So when they declare war on Mr Fox, who has been stealing their chickens and cider to feed the starving animals on the hill, they mean business! They are determined to get Mr Fox. They lie in wait outside his hole, crouching behind trees with loaded guns; ready to shoot, starve or dig Mr Fox out. But Mr Fox is a crafty, noble fox with lots of little foxlets to feed, and he isn’t going to give up that easily. With the help of his friends, Rabbit and Badger, he thinks up an ingenious plan to evade their shotguns and shovels… One of Roald Dahl’s most charismatic characters comes to flamboyant life in this best-loved novel – a true childhood essential.

  • The book is really funny about a sly Mr Fox who outwits Boggis, Bunce and Bean the stupid farm owners who will do anything to see him dead. I think the book is better than the movie.
