Fantastic Mr. Fox

Roald Dahl

“A fox outsmarts a group of farmers so ensure a food supply for him, his family and friends. It had animals that solved the problems of capitalism.”

Antonia Connell-Jones , Rathfarnham

Recommended by:

The story revolves around an anthropomorphic, tricky, and clever fox named Mr. Fox who lives underground beside a tree with his wife and four children. In order to feed his family, he makes night visits to farms owned by three wicked, rude, cruel and dim-witted farmers.
