ty of the thief--it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him; but now fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don't know is that they're not dealing with just any fox--Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender. Only the most fantastic plan can save him now.

Bogus, Bunce, and Bean – three of the most callous famers around, are about to be ransacked by Mr. Fox, and they don’t call him fantastic for nothing. This children’s book explores every angle of marriage, adolescence, what it means to be a man – or a fox, rather – and most importantly what comradery truly means. This book is fantastically written and illustrated, and is one of the greatest stories to ever be told: the tale is exquisite in its ability to convey simple truths to children, and delve deeper into much more complex ideas and hardships. If asked to describe this piece of literature in one word, it can only be detailed as a masterpiece. - @FalcoLombardi of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

A funny book with the daredevil Mr. Fox. His schemes always worked to help him help his friends and family.

My favourite part of the story is when the animal families have a feast. My favourite character is Mr. Fox because he is the smartest. In this book, Mr. Fox saved animals and got food for his family and other animals.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is an absolutely unbelievable book. The story has been told in a way that is exciting to readers because everything is described so thoroughly and so vividly. Everyone should read this book because it's so unrealistic, that imagination becomes everything while reading not only Fantastic Mr. Fox, but all of Roald Dahl's books.

"Boggis and Bunce and Bean
One fat one short one lean
These horrible crooks
So different in looks
Were nonetheless equally mean."
