Crusader is a Year 8 student who is being interviewed by Starford who is also in Year 8. Crusader has read an amazing story called ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ written by a famous author called Roald Dahl.
Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief—it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him; but now fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr Fox and his family surrounded.
Only the most fantastic plan can save Mr Fox now.
