Product Description

Boggis, Bunce and Bean are the meanest farmers in the world – and they hate Mr Fox! He has been stealing their chickens and cider to feed his family and the hungry animals on the hill. So when Boggis, Bunce and Bean declare war on Mr Fox, they mean business! They are determined to get him. They lie in wait outside his hole each day, crouching behind trees with shotguns and shovels. They swear that they will shoot, starve or dig him out. But Mr Fox is a crafty, noble fox with lots of little foxlets to feed, and he isn’t going to give up that easily… Marvel as cunning, clever Mr Fox strikes back against the nastiest farmers in the valley in this fantastic edition of Roald Dahl’s classic, where Quentin Blake’s incredible artwork is transformed into dazzling full colour!

Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl was born in Llandaff, South Wales on September 13th 1916. His parents were Norwegian, and were called Harald and Sofie. He went to Repton school, in Derbyshire, and left school in 1933.

His first job was in Africa, with the Shell Oil Company. In the second world war he fought as a fighter pilot, and was badly injured when his plane crashed. After the war he worked in America, and soon started writing stories.

His very first children’s book, written in 1943 was called The Gremlins. Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of the President of the USA liked it so much he was invited to the White House and became friends with the President, Franklin D Roosevelt.

He wrote a number of books and short stories for adults, many of which were televised as the hugely popular Tales of the Unexpected.

But it was as a children’s author that he found greatest fame and satisfaction, saying “I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers…Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful.” Millions of fans around the world agreed and have chuckled and gasped at his amazing stories. His mesmerising stories, written in sizzling, sparkly language, will lead you into adventures you’ll never ever forget!

From 1945 until his death, he lived at Gipsy House, in Buckinghamshire, where he wrote his famous children’s books. He died in hospital in Oxford, on November 23rd, 1990. His books have continued to be read and loved, and have been made into a number of hit films, including Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You can even visit the Roald Dahl Museum in the village where Dahl lived for most of his life.

In 2009 the Roald Dahl Funny Prize was established in his memory.

    I don’t know what to say, perhaps I’ll start with that it is ingenious and hilariously funny for younger siblings, this is a definite must have book for the family bookshelf or even a gift for a wannabe writer. Loved it :D I also thought that the bit where they have to dig the hole because the hill is gone is funny.
