    For the last few weeks my class has been reading FANTASTIC MR FOX. It is all about Mr Foxs family trying to escape Bogis, Bunce and Bean because they are trying to kill Mr Fox’s familly with gun ‘s and gun pouder.They escape by digging a very very long tunnel. On the way Mr Fox’s wife got very tired. One of the small foxs stayed to look after her while the other four carried on. Mr Fox is aiming for Bogises chicken house number one and they got there.When they got inside they collected 6 chickens and hurried off. Then they went to bunces turkey cage and got some turkeys too. Then they ran away to Beans big storage room of his special apple juice. The story ends when they found a good living place and stayed there for the rest of their lives with Mr Fox collecting all the food. My favourite bit was when they were collecting all the special food.
    THE END (my mum helped me with some typing at the end cos I got tired!)

    I thought that Fantastic Mr Fox was great because Mr Fox hepled others and their families keep safe by digging a hole. He did this because Bunce, Boggis and Bean were digging with a truck and they had to get food because otherwise Bunce, Boggis and Bean would eat them. They crept and got chicken, sausages and pork.
    (I dictated this to my mum and she typed it for me)

    I really enjoyed reading this story by Roald Dahl, he writes very funny stories. I think that it was a happy ending because Fantastic Mr Fox got a place where he could live and have food for the rest of his life. I am also looking forward to watching the movie at school. I have also got the movie of Fantastic Mr Fox on my TV. I really don’t want to live under ground because it would always be dark and cold.
