I’m a bit shocked that I’ve never read this book before! I’ve heard of it for years and then Wes Anderson made it into a movie but still I did not read it.Am I glad that I finally read it? Yes. It is one of the simpler Dahl books so there’s not a lot of depth to discuss. It’s a cute story. It’s interesting seeing the other side of an infestation problem. We’re so used to foxes and other critters to be considered pests we don’t stop and think about the issue from their side. They’re just trying to provide for families and we can’t fault them too much for that. You even start to root for them. Of course that is easy to do when the people they’re stealing from horrible people.The bottom line? I liked it.
