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!

Chapter 2- "Dinner's ready! Oh who's this?" a woman said, staring at me. "Mum, it's the Doctor!" Valetina replied. "The Doctor? Valentina, stop beling everything you watch!" her mother told her. "He's real.  Just look at him!" Valentina  told them both. "Calm down, Valetina." I told her. she nodded and continued to smile. "I am sorry. She has ADHD."  the man told me. "Oh." "It's also because I've veen often depressed." Valentina added, afterwards. "Why?" I asked. "I'll tell you later." Valentina told me with a wink. "Alright. Lets have a fanastic meal!"  the woman annouched . Valentina and her father left to the kitenchen, and I followed. I found an empty seat next to Valentina.  They had a cooked pig. "Is this fine?" the woman asked me. " It's fanastic!" I yelled. I cut a peice off and put it on my plate. "May I cut Valetina a peice?"  I asked. "Sure."  her father told me. I cut a peice for her and put it on her plate. She smiled at me and ate. I eyed the others then decided to take a bit. It was good,with a flavor I never tasted.

(Most characters belong to BBC, the creators of Doctor Who. The referances belong to their owners) You don't know what your fighting for.  What you came here for, feeling all alone. You have loved. You have lost. How does this keep happening? All alone, on your own. But you shouldn't give up, don't ever do that. Chapter 1-  Clarla. Oh how I miss her.  Why does the memories live on, after the battle with the daleks? I  hid my tears once I entered my TARDIS, feeling the erge to go on.  I remembered something. Something old. I glanced out of my TARDIS and gazed at the stars. Oh, Gallifrey, glowing lighly. I sighed once some clouds invaded the sky. "Why are you out in the cold?" a man asked me.  "I was just enjoying the stars, when the clouds shaded my view." I told him. "Oh you must be cold, come on inside." the man told me. I followed him into his house. "Hello!" a young girl came to me smiling. "Hi,"  I muttered pulling out my sonic screwdriver. "You must be the doctor! Oh, how I heard stories about you!"  she  told me, loudly. "Valentina, you do not speak to  a guest like he's the King of England!" the man snapped. "It's alright."I told him. "My wife is cooking dinner. Mine if you stay?" he asked me. "I would stay for dinner." I told him. This made Valetina smile. *Stay tuned after the break please do not coment*
