Because the fox used to take food from Farmers(Boogie, Bunce and Bean) who are awful and mean, he is getting chased by them.
My favourite part of the story was when the foxes worked together as a team and began digging the ground even though they were weak and starving. This is how they escaped
from danger. I would recommend this book to people who are adventurous and courageous. I would also recommend this book to people who are clever and hard working. I rate this
book a four star because the story was very small and the author Roald Dahl could have added more adventure to the story. Overall this was a very good book.

I've just finished reading this to my 5 year old son, I tried to read it to him before but only had a small, black and white illustrated, version which I've had for about 30 years. He was much more attentive and engaged with the story this time around and I think this has a lot to do with the book being larger in size (closer to A4) and full colour illustrations.
The chapters are quite short, which is good when reading you your child before their bedtime. There is no 'filler' , just amazing story on every page.
You've probably read this book before so know what is about, but if you don't have this larger, full-colour version, I strongly recommend you get it. It's 100% worth it. 😁
Mr. Fox is brave and very, very smart. He works together with Mr Badger, to keep their families safe underground, far from the diggers, shovels and guns of the nasty farmers. Mr Fox dug three tunnels, to each of the farm’s cellars and managed to steal all he could to feed all the animal families!
I don’t think Roald Dahl likes the farmers very much, as they get what they deserve. At the end of the book, they are all sitting around the foxhole in the pouring rain while the animals have a great big banquet underneath them.
All kids my age should find this book funny and hilarious and not too difficult to read on their own.
By Sidonie, aged 6-3/4
A)The story is in accordance to a patriarchal hierarchy of the family. Mrs Fox gets weak as they hunting goes on, but clever Mr Fox finds a way to save her, the four kids and their friends. So minus one star.
B)There is a moral question. Fox steals to save his family and friends, but his friend Badger raises the question if it is ethical to do so. Stealing is always wrong, right? Apparently, not always. This issue can spark lots of thoughts and discussions.
My favourites to this day are: Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Enormous Crocodile, The Twits, and George’s Marvellous Medicine. (All of which are on My Kindle)
Roald Dahl is the biggest inspiration to becoming something of a poet and story writer, Myself.
I can’t recommend his vast array of books enough to read to all children, and even to recommend to adults unfamiliar with his work.
Such a fantastic author who made My childhood entertaining.
