    I loved this book! I liked when I found out what the three naughty farmers looked like. I liked the fat one the best, his name is Boggis there was Bunce and Bean too. I found the little foxes cute. My favourite bit was when fantastic Mr fox found all the starving animals and led them to a feast at his house.
