[Note: This book has been read and reviewed by R, my oldest son, who is nine years old at the time of this publication.]

8/10 - Great!

Title: Fantastic Mr. Fox

Author: Roald Dahl

Genre: fantasy

Publisher: Puffin Books

Landed in my hands: purchased by Mom

Summary (from cover blurb):

Every time Mr. Fox steals a chicken from the farm, Farmer Boggis, Bunce, and Bean grow wild with rage. They’re the nastiest crooks in the valley, and they’ve concocted a cunning plan to dig him out of his hole once and for all. But it never occurs to them that Mr. Fox has a fantastic plan of his own...


Fantastic Mr. Fox has an interesting story where lots happens, so it’s easy and fun to read. Three farmers dig out the roots of the tree so the animals have to save it, and that’s all I’m going to spoil. In this book the animals talk and speak English, and that wouldn’t happen in real life, but it makes for an interesting book. My copy had pictures from the animated movie in the middle, and they were great pictures, I loved them. I have seen the movie before and enjoyed it, but it was so long ago I don’t remember the details so I was comfortable reading the book. I would recommend this book, for sure.
