The fantasy written by Ronald Dahl titled Fantastic Mr. Fox will keep you in stitches. This story takes place on a farm where three farmers lived. One was fat, one was short, and one was lean. Their names where Boggis, Bunce and Beans. The most important character of them all is the fantastic Mr. Fox. Mr. Fox steals from the farmers. He steals chickens, turkeys and cider from the farmers. As a result of his stealing, the farmers want to catch and kill him. But will it work? Check the book out and see.
I recommend this story to kids of all ages. This book is a must read book. It is a humorous book to read. The fox is so sly he steals from the farmers without getting caught sometimes. One time he pushed the limit too far. As a result they went hunting for him. The book is a good book for you if you like to get in trouble. To find out more take an easy trip down to library and check it out.
Ronald Dahl has written more than 8 exquisite books. He is such such a good author himself. This is a book which stand above the clouds. Check it out at your local library and have a ball reading this book.

Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl
"Boggis and Bunce and Bean / one fat one short one lean/these horrible crooks / so different in looks / were nonetheless equally mean."
Roald Dahl's story, Fantastic Mr Fox is aimed at 7 to 10 year olds. I reviewed this book because it deserves getting a mention and I think every one should read it.
The story is a basic farmer vs vermin story (similar to the story of peter rabbit) Mr Fox the hero lives in his burrow with his family of four little foxes and his wife called Mrs Fox. Every night before dinner, Mr fox asks Mrs fox what she would want for dinner a nice plump goose or a chicken (of course they both come with cider). The foxes lived up on a hill under a tree and every night Mr Fox would go out and sneak into three mean farms as quoted earlier and steal a chicken or goose and some cider. The farmers had known about Mr Fox for some time and planned to shoot him as soon as he comes out of his hole (the Fox avoids this). I wont give too much of the story away but it involves big machines, digging, complaining badgers rabbits etc and stealing. The pictures on every 3rd page are done by Quentin Blake.

Reading a Roald Dahl book for a bookloving child, -it has to be a success :-)My six year old love this book, as she does with most of Roald Dahl's books.
This is one of the early books from Roald Dahl's pen, but he has already started to develop his special style, the style making the small readers or listeners open their eyes and ears a little extra, wow, can this really be true? And of course all we read is true, in the world of Roald Dahl. Every kid instinctively understand this and can inhabit the Dahl-world in seconds.
Fantastic Mr. Fox is about Mr. Fox and his fight for his family's life, to escape from the three farmers, Boggis and Bunce and Bean, one fat one short one lean. Our loyalty is set right in the beginning of the book, and then we can fight with Mr. Fox and his children through the pages. Mr. Fox is always at least one step ahead of the three farmers, and his plans are so fantastic none of us have fantasy enough to come up with them ourselves, but when we read about the fox we say to ourselves, of course, it has to be like this, just like it was our own idea from the beginning.
No one can write fantastic stories like Roald Dahl. I am happy and thankful for all the books he manage to give us.

There seems to have been a major shift in children's literature recently, thanks, of course, to the pre-eminence of Harry Potter. The latter is a hero parents can be proud of - bespectacled, middle-class, studious: the subtext is education is fun, enlightening and empowering.
The major children's writer before JK Rowling was Roald Dahl, who boasted few of these virtues, offering children cruel wit, and a morbid, often murderous mistrust of parents, adults, education and authority in general. He also implied that children could be malevolent and destructive. Parents hated him - I had to discover Dahl through friends; my mum bought me Enid Blyton. There was always the thrilling feeling that you were doing something illicit or conspiratorial reading Roald Dahl.
The hero of 'Fantastic Mr Fox' is a thief, a violater of property and business, and a murderer and torturer of animals, traits unlikely to endear him to the English middle classes. On the other hand, he rejoices in family values, still endearingly in love with his wife, and a great father. Under impossible odds, he tries to save his family and a host of other animals from the cruelty of three vile farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, who are sick of the varmint's nocturnal sorties for their produce.
First they try to shoot him, but only pepper his tail (a deliciously gruesome episode). Next they dig into his tunnel, but he can dig faster. They use huge mechanical diggers, turning a hill into a valley. They try to starve him, surrounding the area with weapon-wielding minions.
The story of 'Fox' is very simple with few twists and turns.
