Fantastic Mr. Fox

by Roald Dahl Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Fantastic Mr. Fox is on the run and the three meanest farmers around are out to get him. Fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. Mr. Fox would never surrender. But only the most fantastic plan ever can save him now.

Mr. Fox's ingenuity saves all the digging animals from starvation when they are trapped underground by three mean farmers.
