Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful As usual Dahl's novel is full of delightful action and descriptive language that entertains all ages.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Fantastic Mr. Fox is an okay story that children would probably enjoy. It is definitely not Roald Dahl's best books. The story line was not interesting, and the solution to Mr. Fox's problem was somewhat predictable. Fantastic Mr. Fox is about Mr. Fox, who steals chickens and other food from three farmers' farms. The farmers decide that they must shoot the fox. Find out how Mr. Fox gets himself and his family out of this mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite kids tale, read wonderfully I listened to this audio version of "Fantastic Mr. Fox" on my iPod. I have to say, there's just something about someone reading you a children's book that I find lovely, and the narrator here had it down pat. Fantastic Mr. Fox is about said fox, who has a family of three fox cubs, and a wife, and lives in the middle of three very nasty farmers. The farmers decide it's time for the fox - and all the digging animals, to go, and it's up to Mr. Fox to figure a way out of the mess he's in, before all the animals starve. The story is a delight, the farmers are nasty in ways kids will giggle over, and the animals are quick and lively. The end result is a lot of fun, and I remember reading this as a child and imagining and drawing maps of the story's ultimate resolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wonderful I listened to "Fantastic Mr. Fox," on audio, unabridged. I have to say, there's just something about someone reading you a children's book that I find lovely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilariously Funny! Three nasty farmers decide to get rid of the fox and his family once and for all. The fox finds himself in a predicament but after some thinking he comes up with a plan that outsmarts the farmers. This is a hilariously funny book. I've read it several times now and it still makes me chuckle. In the 7yo's own words, he "loved it!" This is an especially fun book to read aloud and Quentin Blake's delicious illustrations on every page are just as much fun as the story itself. Recommended for all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Of Favourites I read this last year, i think and i loved it. I love how Roald Dahl makes animals talk. I love how he gives the simple sayings like, if you are thinking nice things, you look pleasant. (From the twitches) i love this book and definitly give it to younger kids so they won't be brain washed by hillary duff and all those other teens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Book I first fell in love with Fantastic Mr. Fox in grade 2, when it was read aloud to our class during library time. To this day, I can still recall the vivid descriptions and honest-to-goodness thrill of the story. I am rekindling my love affair with Fantastic Mr. Fox as I build a home library for my own daughter. I highly recommend this book to children and adults alike. Don't miss it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Mr. Fox This is without question my favorite book of all time. I'm an english major in University, and I've read hundreds of so-called classic novels, but this tops all of them by far. Its simplistic premise belies the complexity of the themes Mr. Dahl illustrates. Basic metaphors of good vs. evil, triumph over persecution and monopolies, and elegant illustration by Quentin Blake make this, in my opinion, the best children's book ever written.
