Guest Junior Review: Fantastic Mr Fox

Every now and then we are lucky enough to visit an old favourite. Fantastic Mr Fox certainly is one of them as reviewed by another of our guest junior reviewers, Aanya Dhariwal, aged eight.

Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl is adventurous and scary. This book is about Mr Fox trying to get food from the farmers for their family. 
The farmers find out and make a plan to kill Mr Fox. 

The book gets better and better as Mr Fox meets friends like Mr Badger who help him lead their families to food and fun. 

Mr Fox lives underground beside a tree with his wife and four children. 

Tired of being outsmarted by Mr Fox the farmers devise a plan to ambush him as he leaves his burrow, but they succeed only in shooting off his tail.

Recommended for kids ages 6 to 9 who like adventure books.
