Using Fantastic Mr Fox to explore Roald Dahl’s use of alliteration
Fantastic Mr Fox is another of Roald Dahl's stories that was heavily influenced by the Buckinghamshire countryside he grew up in. it even found its way into director Wes Anderson's 2009 stop-motion film adaptation of the book, and models for the set were based on locations in Great Missenden, the town Roald lived and which is now home to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre.
Fantastic Mr Fox offers a wonderful insight into Roald Dahl's use of alliteration and language. In this literacy lesson plan, students are invited to use the story to investigate these linguistic tricks.
