Overview

Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

Nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox!

Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief—it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him; but now fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don't know is that they're not dealing with just any fox—Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender. Only the most fantastic plan can save him now.

About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant PeachMatildaThe BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

My first grade teacher Mrs. Deshpande recommended this book to me and I LOVED it. I watched the movie but I prefer reading the book better. Elizabeth Shay

Got the book for a book report my son had to do. Enjoyed reading it with him. We got thru it in 3 days! I was really pleased with that. My son (an Aspie) was quick to point out that he did not agree with the fox stealing the food, and he did wonder why the people who owned the "hill" weren't coming out with the police to arrest the 3 farmers for tearing up their land. LOL However, that said, he now wants to see the movie! Book was alot of fun and inspired really good coversation with my son.

Yeah, I put "book" because its is soooo short. Basicly just a 20 minute bedtime story. Good story though.

This is a great book. For this book it would be a good start for children that ar just starting to read the Ronald Dahl books. It's also not one of those books that are supper long and terribly hard to read.
