Book Vs Movie: “Fantastic Mr. Fox”

The Margos Cover Roald Dahl (Again!)

One of the most covered authors on Book Vs Movie is also one of the most controversial and we discuss why in this episode dedicated to Roald Dahl and his 1970 children’s novel Fantastic Mr. Fox. The story about a smart fox, his loving family, and his cunning ways to feed them involves tricking the local farmers. The original illustrations were from Donald Chaffin and you can listen to Dahl read his own stories on Audible. 

In 2009, director Wes Anderson directed a stop-motion animation version of the tale with George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Bill Murray among the big-name cast providing the voices. Director Noah Baumbach helped with the screenplay and the film was a critical favorite but had the misfortune of being released the same year as the movie Up

So, between the book and the movie--which did we prefer? Have a listen and find out! 

In this ep the Margos discuss:
