Roald Dahl

 Down in the valley there lived three farmers: Boggis, Bunce and Bean. They had done well. They were rich men and also nasty men. Boggis was a fat chicken farmer, Bunce was a small duck and goose farmer and Bean was a thin turkey and apple farmer and cleverest of them all. Mr Fox lived in a hole under a big old tree. He always stole food from Boggis or Bunce or Bean. He chose carefully and went to his target directly. Boggis, Bunce and Bean wanted to kill the fox. Firstly, they hid beside the big old tree and tried to shoot Mr. Fox when he came out for food, but they missed the body but hit his tail. Secondly, they tried to dig him out with shovels. But unfortunately, Mr. Fox's family dug as well. So Bunce and Bean tried to dig him out with tractors and their machiemical shovels, but it failed as well, due to the length of the tunnel that Mr. Fox's family had dug. Finally, they decided to starve the foxes out from the entrence of the fox's hole. They had their men surround the hill where Mr. Fox's family's hole was. But this failed as well; Mr. Fox dug tunnels to Boggis's chicken house number one, Bunce's marvelous store house and Bean's cider cellar and the farmers didn't know. Even when Mr. Fox took a large amount of food for a party for digger-moles, badgers, rabbits, foxes and weasles, they hadn't noticed! Boggis, Bunce and Bean were still waiting from outside the fox's hole thinking that he would have to come out soon, while under them, the foxes were having a great feast.

 Fantastic Mr. Fox shows us that if a parents' daughter or son is ill, they will do anything to keep them alive, even if they have to go against the law. It also clearly shows us that foxes can be cleverer than crazy people. Boggis, Bunce and Bean's craziness will give us laughs, so people who like to laugh when mad people act crazily will love this book.
