Target Audience: Everyone
I decided to kick off my older book reviews with this one, Fantastic Mr Fox. I loved this when I first read it, and I will happily read it again now.
If you want an idea of the plot, read on:
Mr Fox, Mrs fox and their cubs live in their fox hole, with Mr Fox leaving to steal food every night for his family. One ill-fated night Mr Fox gets his tail shot off and the Foxes and the other creatures living in the hill find themselves under siege by the evil farmers; Boggis, Bunce and Bean (One fat, one short one lean lol)
Stuck underground with no exit and no food, Mr fox and Co create a plan that even the farmers don't see coming and it makes for one amazing adventure.
Now, I don't no whether it was the creepy farmers, the daring food stealing plans or the sheer sense of fun that emanates from this book, but I love the story to bits.
It's a very quick read but a very entertaining one, and I still laugh at the image of those farmers stuck on the hillside, what a bunch of dipsticks.
Anyway, this gets:
