Think about it… 

Why do we want Mr. Fox to outfox the farmers? 

Isn’t it wrong that Mr. Fox has been stealing from them? 

 Why might it be OK for Mr. Fox to take their chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys? 

At the end of chapter 10, Mr. Fox wants to make “a few other little arrangements”.  What do you think he is planning?

After reading chapters 1-3, answer the following questions: 

How has Mr. Fox been outfoxing all three farmers and stealing their animals?  Who do you think is smarter, the farmers or Mr. Fox?  Did the farmers outfox Mr. Fox in chapter 3? 

I wonder who is going to be “outfoxed” in the end!
