Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"My lucky thing," Roald Dahl once said, "is that I laugh at the same things children laugh at." And children do laugh at the things he writes. In this case, fat Mr. Boggis who eats three chickens at every meal, potbellied Mr. Bunce who lives on doughnuts stuffed with goose liver paste, and pencil-thin Mr. Bean who drinks hard cider all day long, have decided to do away with Mr. Fox and his fine family. So determined are these maniacal three, that their efforts to eliminate the Fox family threatens the lives of every digging creature in the forest. Does Mr. Fox save the day? Of course he does! How? That you'll have to find out for yourself in this beautifully bound and superbly illustrated volume. Roald Dahl is the author of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He died in 1990 after more than forty years of making children laugh. Parents note: the farmers have guns, the cider is hard, and there is an occasional graceless belch. 2002, Alfred A Knopf,

Children's Literature - Tina Hudak
In this story, a gentleman fox outwits three crass and vindictive farmers in order to protect his family from extinction. The beginning chapters describe the characters, the following sixteen present a constant stream of adventures as the bitter confrontation ensues between Mr. Fox and Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Chapter titles announce the direction the story is taking. Clever use of language gives an aura of refinement to the fox family, while one of villainy surrounds the farmers. When Bean announces that "I want that fox! I'm going to get that fox! I'm not giving in till I've strung him up over my front porch, dead as a dumpling!" the reader immediately aligns with Mr. Fox despite the fact that he is stealing chickens! The line drawings, with washes of gray are spontaneous and lively. Not a page goes by without a detailed drawing reinforcing the mood of the story. Seeing Bean's ears filled with "all kinds of muck and wax and bits of chewing gum and dead flies and stuff like that" only strengthens the reader's dislike of the character. This illustrated reinterpretation highlights the vibrant qualities of this story. 1998 (orig.
