#105. Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl


Pages: 81
Finished: Nov. 1, 2007
Reason for Reading: read aloud to my 7yo
First Published: 1970
Genre: children, humour, animal fantasy
Rating: 4/5

First Sentence:

Down in the valley there were three farms.


Comments: Three nasty farmers decide to get rid of the fox and his family once and for all. The fox finds himself in a predicament but after some thinking he comes up with a plan that outsmarts the farmers. This is a hilariously funny book. I've read it several times now and it still makes me chuckle. In the 7yo's own words, he "loved it!" This is an especially fun book to read aloud and Quentin Blake's delicious illustrations on every page are just as much fun as the story itself. Recommended for all ages.

  1. My 12 year old read this about 5 years ago, and he still rates it as one of his favourite books.
