"Fantastic Mr Fox" is the legendary tale of the most cunning fox in the world by Roald Dahl. Every time Mr Fox steals a chicken from the farm, Farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean grow wild with rage! They're the nastiest crooks in the valley, and they've concocted a cunning plan to dig him out of his hole once and for all. But it never occurs to them that Mr Fox has a fantastic plan of his own..."A true genius...Roald Dahl is my hero" (David Walliams). With an exciting look into Roald Dahl's world. Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990. Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

        I really liked this book! It is about three silly farmers and underground animals who are as clever as they can get. This book was really funny and I definitely think you should read it.

            So funny! The clever fox is just what I needed to see to laugh! the three farmers are ridiculous, and they are so unrealistic! This book is full of intimidation and fear. At the same time, it is so good!

              So I know that I am too old for this book but I like to read the short classic books from time to time. The story was super enjoyable and the pictures were really nice. I would recommend this for ages 7+

                    Fantastic Mr Fox is a Charming cildrens book about a male fox who sneaks into the farms owned by buggies Bruce and bean. The 3 mean farmers and also the bad guys of the book. Anyway he sneaks over to the farms to steal a tasty meal for his family . Therefore Fantastic Mr Fox is a nice caring and loving character. I recommend that you read this book for it is awesome and I'm not just saying that because it's by the amazing author Roald Dahl himself.
