Mr. Fox came into the three farmers' farms and stole their chickens and geese on a daily basis. He took it to his home and fed his wife and three cubs. But soon, problems arose. The food was starting to run short everyday. The food that was brought everyday wasn't enough to satisfy everyone's hunger. Other families and individual animals were facing similar problems. To add to their problems, the three farmers were getting more determined to get rid of Mr. Fox and all the other troublemakers.
Soon, Boggis, Bunce and Bean decided that they had to take action. They planned a number of things to trap and kill Mr. Fox. They tried day and night to trap Mr. Fox, but the cunning genius managed to escape each time. Then, the three farmers came up with their best plan yet; they decided to dig into his home. So they brought their machines and started digging in through the ground. Mr. Fox, the smartest fox in the area, was now trapped along with his family and a lot of other animals.
Mr. Fox took a while to think of a solution to the problem he was now in, and then he hatched a brilliant plan. He realized that they could dig faster than the farmers could dig. So, he and his family started digging. They faced problems like hunger, but they kept on going. Soon, the family had to stop. Mr. Fox met up with a few of his other animal friends including Badger, Mrs. Badger, three baby badgers, Mole, and Rabbit families. They dug together. It was then that they hit a treasure paradise beyond their most magnificent dreams. The underground team had hit what to them was a fantasy. They had hit the place where all of Boggis', Bunce's and Bean's work lay. All the food and products that were grown on the farm lay here. Mr. Fox and his crew along with their families found their key to survival. They had found food. They also managed to escape from the clutches of the three horrible farmers; Boggis, Bunce, and Bean.
The review of this Book prepared by Arnav Agarwal
Due to the tyrannical nature of the three local farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean (one fat, one short, one lean), Mr Fox finds himself unable to steal enough chickens or geese to support his wife and their three young fox cubs. Other animals in the area are similarly affected, including Badger, Mrs Badger and thier three baby badgers and the Mole and Rabbit families. Just as they are all sure to die of starvation, the ingenious Mr Fox hatches a remarkable plan that will not only get them food, but sort out those horrible farmers for good and all they have to do is start digging...

Debbie on 11/7/2015 5:04:50 PM says: In working with kids, I asked, "Does anyone like a thief?" Resounding, "NO!!" "But, do you like Mr. Fox?" "YES!!" Explain why that makes sense.
Teaching children to think is so much more important than to get them to memorize (which also has a place in learning). This story has lovable characters doing wild things. In other words, children will like the story and enjoy reading it. The fact that the plot allows for moral analysis and open thought and conversation is great!
