Teacher: Good morning, my dear! I'm very glad to see you here. Today we have an unusual lesson. We'll speak about the famous English writer Roald Dahl and his story “Fantastic Mr Fox”. I hope you'll like what you'll see and hear about. So we begin...
Storyteller 1: Roald Dahl was born on September 13, 1916, in Llandaff, South Wales. His parents were Norwegian. During World War II he was a Hurricane fighter pilot. In 1942 Dahl wrote his first story for children “Walt Disney: The Gremlins (A Royal Air Force Story by Flight Lieutenant Roald Dahl)”. But the story wasn't terribly successful. And he didn't try to write for children any more.
Storyteller 2: I can say, he did not start writing for children until he had children of his own. Dahl told his children nightly bedtime stories that inspired his future career as a children's writer.
Storyteller 3: In 1961 Dahl wrote the story “James and the Giant Peach” for his children. He did not want to publish it. But his family talked him to do it. And Dahl argued. This book made him famous. After a big success of it Dahl continued to write and publish books for children. His works include “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “Matilda”, “The Witches”, “Fantastic Mr Fox”, “The BFG”, “The Twits and George's Marvellous Medicine”. Of course, he wrote for adults too.
Storyteller 2: “One of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century"died on 23 November 1990 and is buried in the churchyard of St Peter and St Paul's Church, Great Missenden.
Storyteller 1: Fantastic Mr Fox is a children's novel written by Roald Dahl, first published in 1970. The story is about a clever and tricky fox named fantastic Mr Fox who lived underground beside a tree with his wife and four children. In order to feed his family Mr. Fox came into the three farmers' farms and stole their chickens and geese. All three farmers were nasty and mean people. And of course they hated this cunning fox and tried everything to kill him.
На сцене появляются три фермера.
Bunce: I’d like to rip his guts out!
Bean: He must be killed!
Boggis: But how on earth can we catch the robber?
Bean (picks his nose with a long finger): I have a plan.
Bunce: You’ve never had a good, clever plan yet.
Bean: Shut up and listen. Tomorrow night we will all hide just outside the hole where the fox lives. We will wait there until he comes out. Then… Bang! Bang-bang-bang.
Bunce: Very clever. But first we shall have to find the hole.
Bean: My dear Bunce, I’ve already found it. It’s up in the wood on the hill. It’s under a huge tree…
Storyteller 2:Tonight Mr. Fox was going as usual to get some fat ducks for his family. He was getting out of the hole very carefully, that’s why he saw something bright behind a tree not far away. It was the barrel of a gun! So very quickly he jumped back into his hole and at that same moment Bang-bang! Bang-bang! Bang-bang!
Storyteller 3: Three farmers walked towards the hole. And how do you think: what did they see? So these were the poor bloodstained remains of a fox’s tail. Bean, Boggis and Bunce became very angry. And they made another plan. They decided to dig the fox out. It was a bad idea too. Mr. Fox and his children dug quicker than the farmers.
Boggis (tired and angry): Dang and blast! Whose stupid idea was this?
Bunce: Bean’s idea.
Boggis and Bunce both looked at Bean.
Bean: Listen, I want that fox! I’m going to get that fox! I’m not giving in till he is hanging up over my front porch, dead as a dumpling!
Boggis: We can’t get him by digging, that’s for sure. I won’t dig any more.
Bunce: Have you got any more stupid ideas, then?
Bean: What? I can’t hear you. Speak louder.
Bunce (shouts): Got any more stupid ideas?
Bean: What we need now is machines…mechanical shovels. We’ll have him out in five minutes with mechanical shovels.
Storyteller 1: This was a good idea and the other two agreed with him. The machines went to work. There began a desperate race, the machines against the foxes. The hole the machines had dug became like the crater of a volcano. By the end the farmers switched off the motors of their tractors and decided to starve the foxes out. The watching and waiting went on. But Mr. Fox was too clever for these ugly farmers. And he had an idea too.
Storyteller 2: He realized that they could dig faster than the farmers could dig. So, he and his family started digging. And they ended up in Boggis' number one chicken house. There they stole some chickens. They also raided Bunce's storehouse of ducks, geese and vegetables and Bean's underground cellar of apple cider. Along the way they met Badger and other digging animals who were also starving due to the farmers' siege of the hillside. Mr Fox, feeling responsible for the whole affair, invited the other animals to a feast made from the loot and they all decided to make an underground town where they would be safe.
Storyteller 3: So Mr Fox saved his family and friends because he is a fantastic fox. The author concludes speaking about the farmers “And so far as I know, they are still waiting.”
