"Dang and blast that filthy stinking fox!” he said “What the heck do we do now?”
I’ll tell you what we don’t do,” Bean said “We don’t let him go!”

I hope you’ve never had the misfortune to meet anyone as cruel and callous as Mr Boggis, Mr Bunce and Mr Bean. These three men are farmers and a more disgusting trio cannot be imagined. They usually spend their time gobbling down enormous dinners of boiled chicken, duck-filled doughnuts washed down with gallons of cider but now these three repulsive specimens are at war.

For under a tree on the hill nearby live a fox and his friends: Mr Badger, Mr Mole, Mr Weasel, Mr Rabbit and their families. Every night cunning Mr Fox creeps into their farms and helps himself to a delicious dinner, but now Mr Boggis, Mr Bunce and Mr Bean have other ideas.

Waterstones takes you underground to join a courageous crew of woodland animals led by fantastic Mr Fox as they try to stay one step ahead of the farmers. No-one is more cunning than fantastic Mr Fox and he has some tricks up his sleeve to make the farmers wish they’d never thought to out-smart the smartest creature of all.

Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s number one storyteller.

One of Britain’s finest living illustrators, Quentin Blake has put pictures to more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. As an author he has written and illustrated a number of bestselling children’s books including The Green Ship and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
