One from the world's #1 storyteller's most beloved books available as a full-color picture book for the genuinely first time! Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief--it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! What they don't know is they're not coping with just any fox. Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender, and he just happens to have a fantastic plan of his own. Working alone they could never catch him, but now Boggis, Bunce, and Bean have joined forces, and they've concocted a cunning plan to dig him out of his hole once and for all.

In the tradition of The Adventures of Peter Rabbit, this is truly a"garden tale"of farmer versus vermin, or vice versa."Whatever their prowess as poultry farmers, inside these pages their sole objective is the extermination of our hero--the noble, the clever, the Fantastic Mr. Fox. Our loyalties are defined from the start; right away after all, how could you cheer for a man named Bunce who eats his doughnuts stuffed with mashed goose livers? As 1 might expect, the farmers in this story come out smelling like. well, what farmers occasionally do smell like. The farmers in this case are a vaguely criminal team of three stooges:"Boggis and Bunce and Bean / One fat, 1 short, one distinct lean. / These horrible crooks / So distinct in looks / Were nonetheless equally mean.

This early Roald Dahl adventure is great for reading aloud to three- to seven-year-olds, who will be delighted to hear that Mr. Fox keeps his family one particular step ahead within the obsessed farmers. (Great read aloud for any age; written at a 9- to 12-year-old reading level) When they try to dig him out, he digs faster; when they lay siege to his den, he tunnels to exactly where the farmers least expect him--their own larders! In the end, Mr. Fox not merely survives, but additionally helps the entire community of burrowing creatures live happily ever after. With his usual flourish, Dahl evokes a magical animal globe that, as children, we always knew existed, had we only recognized exactly where or the best way to look for it.
