Just purchased the Kindle version to read to my almost 3-year-old, 6-year-old and almost 9-year-old. My toddler can take it or leave it, she is taking cues from her sisters and "oooo-ing" and "ahhh-ing" in the appropriate places. The two bigger girls love it and so do I! It has the right amount of detail so it doesn't bog down the book. It's action packed and keeping us on the edge of our seats. The end of each chapter has a great cliff hanger that has the girls begging me to keep reading. It is a tad short. It took me 20 minutes to get through the first 5 chapters so we will probably finish the book up in a couple more nights. This is the first chapter book I chose to read to the girls and I'm glad I picked this one. I was worried my oldest (already a huge bookworm) wouldn't like me doing the reading and I was worried my middle kid would get bored quickly. What a good book and great book to read together as a family!
A social media timeline reminder brought back a joyful memory from 2010 of the golden days of parenting, when my then 10-year-old son's bedtime ritual involved mum and dad taking turns to sit beside his bed and read books aloud with him, putting on silly voices and acting out characters within the stories. Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox was one such book!

What I liked most about Fantastic Mr Fox is not just that it’s a good story, but it’s a good story that’s meant to be read aloud. Every word is in the story is needed, you can’t just skim read the sentences and get the same effect. And every word read aloud “feels” good in the mouth!

Roald Dahl was a creative and brilliant writer and given he wrote many of his works for children, perhaps intended for them to be read aloud, by a parent or carer at bedtime, like I did for my son. We read several other of Dahl’s books, but none ever struck me as quite so poetically flowing and pleasing to the ear (and tongue) as Fantastic Mr Fox.

I couldn't find my son's copy of Fantastic Mr Fox after the timeline reminder, so for old times sake, I purchased the Kindle version, and enjoyed reading it again. I recommend you do the same. Perhaps find a quiet place to read it aloud. Or, better still, read it to your child at bedtime.

I think like me, you’ll find reading Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox aloud is fantastic!
Fantastic Mr. Fox is a fantastic book! There are a lot of cliffhangers in this book! All the characters are unique and interesting in their own way. The animals have so much personality. Its wonderful little digging creatures give it charm. This book is good to read to 1st-5th graders. The book is very enjoyable and fun. It is entertaining. If you like fantasy, this is the book for you! You would also like it if you like animals that talk and act like humans. If you like action packed stuff, you'll love this book. If you are a fan of Walt Disney's animation, you will like Quinten Blake's illustrations. You should get this book-- our class loved it!
Such a fun book. My five year old (who is really into gross stuff) thinks this book is hilarious and loves hearing the nasty tricks the Twits play on each other. I Loved it too as a kid, and now, and I am so glad she feels the same. Unlike some books where I find myself wondering if the bad guys are giving her bad ideas she would not have thought of otherwise... the tricks and trouble the Twits make are so far-fetchedly terrible that even my little Bart-Simpson-Dennis-the-menace child immediately sees the humor and ridiculousness, and of course sympathized with the poor monkeys. A great book to read aloud with kids.
Dahl is a creative genius! I bought Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, and James and the Giant Peach as part of the summer learning fun I planned for my 5.5 year old son. Fantastic Mr. Fox is a quick and easy chapter book for parents to read to small children in order to introduce them to more advanced reading. Older children (6+) could easily read this independently. We finished the book in about a week reading every night as a family and then watched the movie together. The movie is entertaining but only loosely based on the events in the book. My son LOVES both and I love that he is so enthralled with reading.
A fun introduction to dark humour for kids. While it sets an example of everything a relationship should NOT be, I have to admit it was sort of funny to observe the bodily humour and laugh at the two very disturbed anti-heroes. If I were to have a child read this, I would probably insist on doing it With them as opposed to having it read it alone without a few comments here and there about how this is no way to behave in real life. That way, its mischief might be mitigated by a little reality...not to spoil the fun, of course, but just in case the child is too young to recognize sarcasm--and it makes a GREAT read-aloud. Anyhow, it's fun, crude, and silly like much of Dahl's work.

In The Twits we see the daily lives of the two most horrible, dirty, ugly, and mean people in town. They are a married couple who do anything and everything to hurt and annoy one another, and when not bothering one another, torture a family of monkeys by training them to be a circus act. Their favorite food is bird pie, which they make by catching birds in trees by using paste on the branches. PLOT SPOILER: The monkeys turn the tables and defeat their owners who, by being pasted to the floor upside-down, collapse into themselves until they disappear forever.
I was trying to steer my 8 year old daughter away from Dork Diaries and the like. She normally is bored with books if the first chapter isn't filled with drama to pull her in. She has started a lot of books but only finished a few. I wanted her to see that she can find a book that would keep her attention without the preteen drama queen theme. She read this one "cover" to "cover" on her Kindle.loved this book because it was very silly and descriptive. The words flowed together to paint a picture in her mind, unlike some books where the wording gets in the way of the story. She said that Roald Dahl is now one of her favorite authors, and she would like to read other books by him.
