Fantastic Mr. Fox: Book Review

Looking for a truly fantastic book to read? We’ve got the perfect title for you … Fantastic Mr. Fox! No, we’re not talking about the movie (although it’s fantastic, too) – we’re talking about the original story by author extraordinaire Roald Dahl!


Fox Tale

Three mean local farmers – Boggis, Bunce and Bean (one fat, one short, one lean) – make it nearly impossible for Mr. Fox to steal enough chickens or geese to support his wife and their three young fox cubs. Not one to die of starvation, sly Mr. Fox hatches a plan that will not only get them food, but give those horrible farmers a taste of their own medicine! Now, all they’ve got to do is start digging …


The plan goes off without a hitch – almost TOO well, in fact. Determined to get rid of Mr. Fox, the three farmers decide to take action. They plan different ways to trap and kill Mr. Fox, but fail miserably each and every time. Then they come up with their best plan yet: they decided to dig into Mr. Fox’s home. Now Mr. Fox needs to think up a solution to this problem, or else his entire family – and all the other animals who live in his underground neighbourhood, will be in big trouble!
