Librarians will want to consider purchasing this newly released edition."--Booklist.

What I liked most about Fantastic Mr Fox is not just that it’s a good story, but it’s a good story that’s meant to be read aloud. Every word is in the story is needed, you can’t just skim read the sentences and get the same effect. And every word read aloud “feels” good in the mouth!
Roald Dahl was a creative and brilliant writer and given he wrote many of his works for children, perhaps intended for them to be read aloud, by a parent or carer at bedtime, like I did for my son. We read several other of Dahl’s books, but none ever struck me as quite so poetically flowing and pleasing to the ear (and tongue) as Fantastic Mr Fox.
I couldn't find my son's copy of Fantastic Mr Fox after the timeline reminder, so for old times sake, I purchased the Kindle version, and enjoyed reading it again. I recommend you do the same. Perhaps find a quiet place to read it aloud. Or, better still, read it to your child at bedtime.
I think like me, you’ll find reading Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox aloud is fantastic!
I love this book. It was an undiscovered gem to me, a longtime Roald Dahl fan! If you liked the movie, you'll like this book. It's shorter than some of his other books - it took me an evening to finish, and reading it to the kids would take one or two nights. It's classier, cleverer, and funnier than some of the others. Highly recommended. My kids love it.
The "Hard Cover" itself only has the title information on the spine, so make sure to keep the paper sleeve.
The "Hard Cover" is the same color of blue as the paper sleeve's.
Illustrated well in its own funky way and the text is crisp with the paper that has the rustic recycled paper look.
Good story, fun read. Its amazing all the differences there are between the movie and this book.
