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!

Mr. Fox is brave and very, very smart. He works together with Mr Badger, to keep their families safe underground, far from the diggers, shovels and guns of the nasty farmers. Mr Fox dug three tunnels, to each of the farm’s cellars and managed to steal all he could to feed all the animal families!
I don’t think Roald Dahl likes the farmers very much, as they get what they deserve. At the end of the book, they are all sitting around the foxhole in the pouring rain while the animals have a great big banquet underneath them.
All kids my age should find this book funny and hilarious and not too difficult to read on their own.
By Sidonie, aged 6-3/4
My favourites to this day are: Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Enormous Crocodile, The Twits, and George’s Marvellous Medicine. (All of which are on My Kindle)
Roald Dahl is the biggest inspiration to becoming something of a poet and story writer, Myself.
I can’t recommend his vast array of books enough to read to all children, and even to recommend to adults unfamiliar with his work.
Such a fantastic author who made My childhood entertaining.
