Fantastic Mr. Fox is the best book written by Roald Dahl by far. Mr. Fox is this character of a mix of numerous traits. He's naive, and lacks a bit of common sense here and there but his quick wits make up for it. Dahl was able to incorporate human nature and characteristics into a bunch of field animals. The plot is one whole big adventure intelligently planned.

Mr.Dahl's book are truly A-MAZ-ING!! My favorite part of the book was when Mr.Fox teams up with all the other animals.In the end they have a feast, to celebrate how fantastic Mr.Fox, the cunning little thief, outsmarts the three lousy farmers.I would highly recommend this book to anyone that likes animals and likes to read descriptive language. To me, this book is the best book Dahl ever wrote.

A truly fantastic story from cover to cover. Whimsical and exceedingly clever, The Fantastic Mr. Fox is my favorite of Dahl's work, which is also done justice by Wes Anderson's film adaptation. This book is perfect for anyone who finds joy in a little bit of mischief.

I like Roald Dahl's books because it keeps you hooked.

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

Mr. Fox- sweet cunning clever,
three crazy farmers,
and all four characters have something in common-
tricks up their sleeves to get what they want.
The farmers want the fox,
and the fox wants the farmers food- lets see who gets the milk and who-
gets the can.

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