Fantastic Mr. Fox
by Roald Dahl
Here is a story about three nasty poultry farmers who team up to try and finish off a fox who keeps raiding their barns. Mr. Fox cleverly saves his whole family, and a bunch of other burrowing creatures besides, and thwarts the aims of the three wicked men. It's a very charming story whose moral you may not quite agree with, but it is basically "It's okay to steal if your family is starving." In the animal world, at least, there's nothing wrong with that. In the human world, if that's what you're supposed to think about, it provokes some thought, doesn't it?
Since it is such a short book, and so easily and quickly read, I won't add any more except to say that I recommend all of Dahl's magical books for young readers and the young at heart.
