Up For Sale Today is. The story revolves around an anthropomorphic, tricky, clever fox named Mr. Fox who lives underground beside a tree with his wife and four children. In order to feed his family, he makes nightly visits to farms owned by three wicked, cruel, dimwitted farmers named Boggis, Bunce, and Bean and snatches the livestock available on each man's farm. Tired of being outsmarted by Mr.
Fox, the farmers devise a plan to ambush him as he leaves his hole, but they succeed only in shooting off his tail. The farmers then dig up his burrow using first spades and then Caterpillar tractors. The Foxes manage to escape by burrowing further beneath the earth to safety.The trio of farmers are ridiculed for their persistence, so they decide to surround Mr. Fox's hole and wait until he is hungry enough to come out.
Cornered by his enemies, Mr. Fox and his family (along with all of the other families of underground creatures) begin to starve. Fox devises a plot to acquire food. He and his children tunnel through the dirt and wind up burrowing to Boggis's hen-house, just as he had planned.
Fox kills several chickens and sends his eldest son to carry the food back home to Mrs. On the way to their next destination, Mr. Fox runs into his friend Badger and permits him to accompany him on his mission, and the group proceeds to tunnel to Bunce's farm and then to Bean's cider cellar (where they are nearly discovered by a hired woman named Mabel when she enters the room to collect a few jars of apple cider for Bean). The animals carry their loot back home, where Mrs.Fox has prepared a great celebratory banquet for the starving underground animals and their families. Fox invites everyone to live in a secret underground neighbourhood with him and his family, where he will hunt for them daily and none of them will any longer need to worry about the farmers.
Everyone joyfully cheers for this idea, while Boggis, Bunce, and Bean are left waiting for the fox to emerge from his hole. OUR MISSION STATEMENT: Our goal is to provide the best books for the lowest prices.
