9780141805641: Fantastic Mr Fox and Other Animal Stories

This special CD pack contains four of Roald Dahl's much-loved stories.THE GIRAFFE AND PELLY AND ME: In this classic story of the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company, we accompany Billy, who is lucky enough to join in the many remarkable and entertaining adventures of the Company's animals: the giraffe with an incredible stretching neck, the pelican with a magical beak and the dancing monkey. ESIO TROT: Here's a very tortoisey one that will become an instant favourite! Mr Hoppy is in love with Mrs Silver, but she only has eyes for her tortoise Alfie. She would so love Alfie to grow bigger, she says. In a bold attempt to outdo his rival, Mr Hoppy devises an ingenious plan to make Alfie grow and grow and grow... Wonderfully brought to life, here we meet THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE. He boasts that he is going to eat a child for lunch and sets out to trick all the children in his attempts for food. But his plots and disguises are foiled by the animals in the jungle - especially by Trunky, the Elephant. FANTASTIC MR FOX: Boggis, Bunce and Bean are just about the nastiest and meanest three farmers you could meet. And they hate Mr Fox. They are determined to get him. So they lie in wait outside his hole, ready to shoot, starve or dig him out. But clever Mr Fox has other plans! Find out what those plans are in this hilarious story, fully dramatized by Puffin Audiobooks.

Review:

In the tradition of The Adventures of Peter Rabbit, this is a "garden tale" of farmer versus vermin, or vice versa. The farmers in this case are a vaguely criminal team of three stooges: "Boggis and Bunce and Bean / One fat, one short, one lean. / These horrible crooks / So different in looks / Were nonetheless equally mean." Whatever their prowess as poultry farmers, within these pages their sole objective is the extermination of our hero--the noble, the clever, the Fantastic Mr. Fox. Our loyalties are defined from the start; after all, how could you cheer for a man named Bunce who eats his doughnuts stuffed with mashed goose livers? As one might expect, the farmers in this story come out smelling like ... well, what farmers occasionally do smell like.

This early Roald Dahl adventure is great for reading aloud to three- to seven-year-olds, who will be delighted to hear that Mr. Fox keeps his family one step ahead of the obsessed farmers. When they try to dig him out, he digs faster; when they lay siege to his den, he tunnels to where the farmers least expect him--their own larders! In the end, Mr. Fox not only survives, but also helps the whole community of burrowing creatures live happily ever after. With his usual flourish, Dahl evokes a magical animal world that, as children, we always knew existed, had we only known where or how to look for it. (Great read aloud for any age; written at a 9- to 12-year-old reading level)

From the Inside Flap:

Fantastic Mr. Fox is on the run! The three meanest farmers around are out to get him. Fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don?t know is that they?re not dealing with just any fox?Mr. Fox would never surrender. But only the most fantastic plan ever can save him now.
