Summary

Puffin presents a marvellous new celebrity reading of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox

Mr Fox steals food from the horrible farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean - one fat, one short, one lean.

These three crooks concoct a plan to dig Mr Fox out of his home, but they don't realise how truly fantastic Mr Fox is, or how far he'll go to save his family....

Fantastic Storytelling!

This is another really enjoyable story from Roald Dahl that I read when I was at school (many years ago), but have revisited now via an audio book.

Dahl is a master storyteller, and this is up there with his other classic children's titles. There are moments of great humour and excitement as Mr Fox does battle with the three mean farmers who are after him and his family.

Narration by Chris O'Dowd was also entertaining. Highly recommended for those young and those wishing to revisit their youth.

Worth the download for a 4 year old

My 4 year old thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. Narration was entertaining. Pity it was such a short story though

Great fun listen

Just the perfect thing to listen to on a Sunday afternoon when you want something delightful to play in the background.

Chris O'Dowd does a brilliant job with the different voices, and the sound effects are fantastic, especially listen out for the one where the tail gets thrown away, had to replay that a number of times.

Yes it's a children's book, but there's a lot for adults to enjoy too.

Brilliant, just brilliant.

Loved it and Roy from the IT crowd. Perfect combo! I originally saw the film adaption, but needed a new bed time book (to calm my mind). This was perfect, except for a few loud moments from the farmers haha! The book is more soothing and the narrator keeps it easy to follow by doing different voices. I thoroughly enjoy the book. Sad that it is so shirt though!
