A joyous, giddy adventure – quintessential Dahl. Three nasty, rich farmers want to do away with Mr Fox and his family, who live off of their plump poultry. Easier said than done! Dahl's sharp-toothed humour, boundless imagination and love for those who must live by their wits are on delightful display here. One of my all-time favourites.— Reva

About the Author
Roald Dahl is, quite simply, one of the best loved children's book authors of all time. He died in 1990 in Oxford, England, at the age of 74. Quentin Blake, the first Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom and a recipient of the Kate Greenaway Medal, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books.
"This reprint of the 1970 edition tells the story of clever Mr. Fox, his adoring wife, and their four small children, who outsmart three of the nastiest, ugliest, and ultimately dumbest farmers ever to raise poultry. Librarians will want to consider purchasing this newly released edition."--Booklist.
