Summary

From the same beloved author who brought us The BFG and Matilda comes a classic tale of brave heroes, dastardly villains and one clever fox who simply refuses to be beaten.

Puffin presents a marvellous new celebrity reading of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox. The audiobook features original music and 3D sound design by Pinewood film studios.

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.

Energetic and exciting!

Chris O'Dowd really brought the characters to life. We love this story so much - along with all of Roald Dahl's other work but the characters of Foxy and his family and the dastardly farmers are really recognisable here.

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!
