Fantastic Mr Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox | Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake
Fantastic Mr Fox is the legendary tale of the most cunning fox in the world by Roald Dahl. Every time Mr Fox steals a chicken from the farm, Farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean grow wild with rage! They're the nastiest crooks in the valley, and they've concocted a cunning plan to dig him out of his hole once and for all. But it never occurs to them that Mr Fox has a fantastic plan of his own . . . "A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams ***with an exciting look into Roald Dahl's world***Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

This is such a fun, cute trickster tale! Mr. Fox and others get the last laugh on three terrible farmers! I can‘t wait to hand this one to Zoey! Or maybe I‘ll read it to all three of my kids! The illustrations are so sweet too!

CafeMom My son's favorite author when he was young. 1w
AshleyHoss820 @CafeMom I have only read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and this one, so far but I love his writing style! 😊😊😊 (edited) 7d

A thieving fox steals chickens, ducks, cider and other foods from three farmers who are nasty and greedy. As the farmers try to ambush Mr. Fox and his family, the sly animal has a ‘fantastic‘ plan to deceive them and save his family and other ‘diggers‘ friends from starving. Funny story that makes you root for the animals even though they were stealing from the humans!

Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl is a FANTASTIC story of Mr. Fox, who lives with his wife and four baby foxes. They steal chickens and ducks from the three mean old farmers named Boggis, Bunce, and Bean who soon begin to try and hunt down Mr. Fox. The book is a short read, so I believe utilizing this book as a part of an AS about Roald Dahl would be effective. #ucflae3414f19

CPettersen UDL principle 2.1 would be necessary as Roald Dahl was famous for creating new nonsensical words that students would not know unless they have read one of his books prior. ESOL 23 would thusly be effective not just for ESOL learners but for all learners to get some clarification on the terminology Roald Dahl has created in his book. 3mo
DrSpalding This is your second book by this author. There is such a sense of wonder in his books. Use them in a variety of ways and consider an author study! He is fascinating. 2mo

🎙 Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix - specifically the scene in Wayne‘s World when Garth is “dancing” in the donut shop. If you haven‘t scene it go YouTube it it‘s one of Dana Carvey‘s better acting moments.

I downloaded this book so that I could share my love of “reading” with my 6 year old. I really wanted Esio Trot, but it was only available as an audio in this set. I was unfamiliar with the 3 other stories; the voices and some of the story in Fantastic Mr. Fox scared her and the story about the crocodile also scared her. Overall, we did enjoy this but I think I would‘ve preferred to have read it to her myself. 2019 book 2

Saw this gorgeous guy who I‘m sure participated in his share of #winterkills in the backyard today. Also the fantastic mr. Fox in the tagged book does a good amount of chicken killing as he plots to foil the men trying to trap him and his family. One of my son‘s favorite books. He laughs a lot as the sly fox 🦊 outwits everyone. #winterwonderland

This goofball finished his first ever chapter book! He loved it because 1. It had animals and 2. It was funny. He love saying “Boggis, Bunce, and Bean.”

Now he is asking for more chapter books. Any recommendations? He‘s 5 so it needs to be shortish, and he wants more about animals. I asked if dragons count but he said no ☹️. I tried Mr. Poppers Penguins about 6 months ago but he didn‘t like it.

Oh yes. My husband usually steals this movie to show his students so it's a rare treat that we have it at home. I think it's one of the rare cases where the book and movie are equal.

The thieving Mr Fox outsmarts three mean, greedy farmers by burrowing straight to their larders and chicken houses to steal food for his family and friends, when the farmers surrounded his hole and waited for him to appear.

As soon as we finished this book, my son said, “can we start it again?” He absolutely loved seeing how the fantastic Mr. Fox was able to outfox the three mean farmers. A wonderful read-aloud. It only takes an hour or so to read and is clever and fun.

My kids thoroughly enjoyed this book, the pictures and the story. When I read it to them they felt the plight of the Fox family and the other creatures, and because of that they became invested in the tale.

Was it as clever as the movie? No, but I rather enjoyed it myself. I think I do prefer the movie to the book because it seemed to expand on what was given here, but it was entertaining to read.

Roald Dahl is one of my favorites to read.

Dahl is a childhood favourite author, because his books are dark and funny, and often gross. All things that appeal to a child.
I remember finding the evil farmers terribly sinister and creepy as a child reading this! Quentin Blakes illustrations are inseparable from the authors words in my mind. Perfect pairing
#bookstagram #childrensbooks #britishauthor

Between.the.lines Omg I just read this book to my son last month we are working our way through Roald Dahl books at the moment and I didn't realise how dark they were. We were less sheltered as kids that's for sure haha 3y
Jamesfahyauthor @Between.the.lines I think kids like to be scared! It's a safe way, through fiction, to learn how to deal with real fears. Kids today can be too wrapped in cotton woll. It's not healthy 3y

"'I dare not do that,' said Mr. Fox, 'because this place I am hoping to get to is so marvelous that if I described it to you now you would go crazy with excitement. And then, if we failed to get there (which is very possible) you would die of disappointment.'"

I have yet to read "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" by Roald Dahl, but I just started "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator". Reading it as an adult I'm kind of amazed at how dark it can sometimes get but the book is just as magical and mesmerizing as it was when I was a kid.

Thedrunkstrawberry If you haven't already, you should check out his short stories. They're amazing, and some can be quite dark. 4y
