Author(s): Roald Dahl
This is a wonderful colour edition of one of Roald Dahl best-loved stories, now a major film. Boggis, Bunce and Bean are nasty, mean farmers who hate Mr Fox. They are determined to get him, so they lie in wait outside his hole, each one crouching behind a tree with his gun loaded, ready to shoot, starve or dig him out. But clever, handsome Mr Fox has other plans!
