Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox

by Roald Dahl Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Fantastic Mr. Fox keeps his family one step ahead of the three pursuant, obsessed farmers. Mr. Fox would never surrender. When they try to dig him out, he digs faster; when they lay siege to his den, he tunnels to where the farmers least expect him: their own larders! In the end, Mr. Fox not only survives, but also helps the whole community of burrowing creatures live happily ever after.
