ABOUT THIS BOOK

Fantastic Mr. Fox is on the run! The three meanest farmers around are out to get him. 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 never surrender. But only the most fantastic plan ever can save him now.

QUOTES

"This reprint of the 1970 edition tells the story of clever Mr. Fox, his adoring wife, and their four small children, who outsmart three of the nastiest, ugliest, and ultimately dumbest farmers ever to raise poultry. Librarians will want to consider purchasing this newly released edition."--Booklist.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Roald Dahl is, quite simply, one of the best loved children’s book authors of all time. He died in 1990 in Oxford, England, at the age of 74.

Quentin Blake, the first Children’s Laureate of the United Kingdom and a recipient of the Kate Greenaway Medal, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl’s children’s books.
