The Lovereading4Kids comment

Ideal as an early introduction to Roald Dahl just as a child is starting to read alone because it’s a short story by comparison to some of his others. Filled with quirky black and white illustrations by the wonderful Quentin Blake that complement the story so beautifully. As three of the nastiest and most crooked farmers vow to wreak revenge on the foxes eating their chickens, little do they know what the foxes have in store for them.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Boggis and Bunce and Bean, three mean farmers, set out to trap Mr Fox and family - but fantastic Mr Fox is craftier than any of them. One of the best Dahl stories - exciting, funny, simply written; with pictures too.

Synopsis

Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl

This fabulous book has also been made into a film - Out in the UK 23 Oct 2009. See below for an exclusive trailer.

//

Boggis, Bunce and Bean are just about the nastiest and meanest three farmers you could meet, and they hate Mr Fox. They are determined to get him. They lie in wait outside his hole, each one crouching behind a tree with his gun loaded, ready to shoot, starve or dig him out. Mr Fox has other plans.

About the Author

Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl was born in Wales of Norwegian parents – the child of a second marriage. His father and elder sister died when Roald was just three. His mother was left to raise two stepchildren and her own four children. Roald was her only son.

He had an unhappy time at school - at Llandaff Cathedral School, at St Peter’s prep school in Weston-super-Mare and then at Repton in Derbyshire.

Dahl’s unhappy time at school was to influence his writing greatly. He once said that what distinguished him from most other children’s writers was “this business of remembering what it was like to be young”. Roald’s childhood and schooldays are the subject of his autobiography Boy.

Since Roald Dahl’s death, his books have more than maintained their popularity. Total sales of the UK editions are around 37 million, with more than 1 million copies sold every year! Sales have grown particularly strongly in America where Dahl books are now achieving the bestselling status that curiously proved elusive during the author’s lifetime.
