Foxy Father

Guy vows to straighten out his life when his wife tells him he'll be a father. It's a true story over and over that Roald Dahl wrote up in the book that has become the movie, The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Also true to life, Mr. Fox doesn't quite keep his promise.

Fact into fantasy and back to fact. It's a dad's life, and pretty much how Dahl actually lived a life where, according to daughter Lucy "Wild Child" Dahl's recollection, he test marketed his stories to his girls before bedtime and fell off the ladder outside their windwo he used to pretend to be the BFG every time he told that tale, one of his most beloved stories.
