Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★

"I just want to see... a little sunshine."
- Mole

Wow, that was bright. And foxy. Very, very foxy.

Roald Dahl wrote Fantastic Mr. Fox at a sad time in his life having recently lost one of his five children to measles and another suffer from water on the brain following a car accident. It prompted him to write a tale of a father protecting his family.

I reckon Wes Anderson did the book a real service by bringing it to a new audience in a fun and endearing way, nearly 40 years after it was penned by Dahl.

Watched as part of Scavenger Hunt #68 | November 2020.
