Boggis, Bunce and Bean
One fat, one short one lean.
So different in looks were nonetheless equally mean
Mr. Fox steals food from the horrible farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean-one fat, one short, one lean. As Mr. Fox steals food from the three crooks, the three crooks plan to take revenge on Mr. Fox. They plan to dig Mr. fox out of his home which is under the ground, but they don’t realise how truly FANTASTIC Mr. Fox is, or how far he will go to save his family.
Boggis was a chicken farmer. He kept thousands of chickens in his farm. He was enormously fat. This was because he ate three boiled chickens smothered with dumplings every day for breakfast, lunch and supper.
Bunce was a duck-and-goose farmer. He kept thousands of ducks and geese. He was a kind of pot-bellied dwarf. He was so short that his chin would have been underwater in the shallow end of any swimming-pool in the whole world. His food was doughnuts and goose livers. He mashed the livers into a disgusting paste and then stuffed the paste into the doughnuts. This diet gave him a tummy-ache and a beastly temper.
Bean was a turkey-and-apple farmer. He kept thousands of turkeys in an orchard full of apple trees. He never ate anything at all. Instead, he drank gallons of strong apple cider which he made from the apples in his orchid. He was as this as a pencil and the cleverest of them all.
Every night, Mr. Fox would sneak up to the three crooked farmers’ farms and steal food from them. This food kept Mr. Fox’s family very happy. But one day the three bad farmers plan to get rid of Mr. Fox forever. They plan to kill him and his family.
Do you think Mr. Fox will survive? And how? If you want to know the answers to these questions, you will have to read the book. By reading this book, you will also come to know what the three farmers are doing now.
