Product description

Boggis, Bunce and Bean are the meanest, foulest farmers in the world! So when they declare war on Mr Fox, who has been stealing their chickens and cider to feed the starving animals on the hillside, they mean business! They are determined to get Mr Fox. They lie in wait outside his hole each day, crouching behind trees with loaded guns; ready to shoot, starve or dig Mr Fox out. But Mr Fox is a crafty, noble fox with lots of little foxlets to feed, and he isn’t going to give up that easily. With the help of his friends Rabbit and Badger, he thinks up an ingenious plan to evade their shotguns and shovels… One of Roald Dahl’s most charismatic characters comes to flamboyant life in this best-loved novel – a true childhood essential.

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Fantastic Mr Fox.

    The book is really funny about a sly Mr Fox who outwits Boggis, Bunce and Bean the stupid farm owners who will do anything to see him dead. I think the book is better than the movie.

    I loved the story, how Mr Fox plotted a fantastic plan to feed all his family and friends when they were being hunted down.

    I read this book just before the movie came out so I could spoil the movie fr myself sad right any ways I didn’t like the book much I thought the mr fox should like his son better than the cousion .

  24. thesoupdragon44
    on 4 March 2013

    My son is only just getting into reading Roald Dahl but this one is a good story and nice and easy to read. The pictures add to the interest at this age and we love the different farmer charicters

    Fantastic mr fox was such a sweet book, that i so enjoyed reading, as did my brother. I loved that it wasn’t about people, and instead about animals, because it was varying from other books I’d read at that time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as i think any young child would.

    Didn’t like this book at all. But the thing is i looked at the film and then read the book and i have never done that before. So that could be the reason why i didn’t like it.

    Roald Dahl is an amazing author, but this really is not my favourite book.I found it hard to imagine the characters, and the plot wasn’t realistic. Overall? Not impressed.

    Fantastic Mr Fox is a good book. It was interesting and funny and I liked all the little animals. It was a story of trust, and Roald Dahl excelled as always.

    One of my favourite Roal Dahl storys is Fantastic Mr.Fox because the farmors do the most unusal things I have ever seen like Bean never haveing a bath or the three farmors staying infront of the fox hole and they are not as smart as the fox famaly no not one bit!

    when i read the book it was like i was there and was watching it all happen. The book is very descriptive and funny. The way that Roald Dahl described the three villians was so incredible that you could imagine them very clearly. Fantastic Mr Fox was incredible and is suitable for all ages and i recommend this book for all readers.

    This story is about a fox that steals food from these three very nasty farmers. And their names are Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. But they got very angry about this and came up with a plan!
