LoveReading View on Fantastic Mr Fox

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. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Fantastic Mr Fox Synopsis

This fabulous book has also been made into a film. 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.
