"And so it begins another enchanting Roald Dahl tale concerning the extraordinary adventures of three nasty farmers, two curious creatures, a family of foxes and our hero- a most fantastic fellow! Mr. Fox and his friends are able to outsmart the farmers and take us through a delightful tale. Fantastic Mr. Fox, like many of Dahl’s works, is a story about triumphing over cruel and selfish forces. The novel explores the importance of family and friends as well as the power of intelligence in overcoming strength."
