Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl

Posted on Updated on

I have just finished reading Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl.

Mr Fox has a wife and four children, but to feed them he sneaks out every night to get food. He steals food from these three horrible farmers called Boggis, Bunce and Bean. However they are out for revenge! 

All the school children have  rhyme that goes:

“Boggis and Bunce and Ben,
One fat, one short, one lean,
These horrible crocks, 
So different in looks, 
Were none less equally mean”

I really liked the way that the three men tried to get revenge, and never succeeded. 

There wasn’t really anything I didn’t like about the book. It was a really interesting read, I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t my favourite Roald Dahl book though, that was “The Twits”.

I give is 8/10, I would recommend it to children 7 upwards.
