Fantastic Mr. Fox

Written by Roald Dahl

This story is about three nasty farmers. The three nasty farmers names are Boggis, Bean, and Bunce. The foxes always stole from the farmers Boggis, Bean and Bunce. Bunce is the dwarf, and the skinny one is Bean, and the fat one is Boggis. There were four little foxes and Mr. Fox and Mrs.Fox. The foxes were starving until they stole from the three nasty farmers. The farmers shoot the dad's tail off. The foxes want to have a feast. Other animals want to have a feast too. The other animals are rabbits, moles, weasels, and badgers. If you want to find out some more about the story, you should read the book.

My favorite part was when Mr. Fox said, "You saucy beast!" to the rat. That was funny when he said that. I like it because it made me laugh. I think the best character was the rat because when he was drinking a whole bunch of apple cider, he got drunk and said funny things. He was trying to get the Fox into trouble, but he didn't. I was glad the fox got away from the rat! This story reminds me of Cinderella because both stories had people being mean to others. The step-sisters were mean to Cinderella, and the three nasty farmers were mean to Mr.Fox.

I recommend this book because it is full of action. I think my sisters or brothers would like this story. Kids who are seven or older could read this book.
