Fantastic Mr. Fox – 20

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Fantastic Mr. Fox – By Roald Dahl – I got interested in this book when I saw the trailer for it. I love Roald Dahl. He has a special way of drawing readers into his fun loving comical books. This book is really about a show down between three farmers and one sneaky fox. The farmers are all out to kill the fox that always steals from them. Mr. Fox gets his family to help him dig a tunnel that helps to save all the digging animals.

Check out the new trailer for the Lightning Thief:  Click Here

I thought the movie was about 65% true to the book. I didn’t like that they didn’t put Ares, the god of war parts in the movie. I didn’t like how they ended with the different fight scene wit Luke and Percy. It was okay though. My vote is for the book as better.
