Fantastic Mr. Fox

I am really looking forward to seeing the movie Fantastic Mr. Fox, both because I’m a fan of director Wes Anderson and a fan of stop-motion animation.  The movie is based on the book of the same title by Roald Dahl, author of such children’s classics as The Witches and Matilda.  I imagine that Wes Anderson’s penchant for quirky characters and minutely-detailed  sets will pair well with Roald Dahl’s odd sense of humor.  My only question is: should I read the book or see the movie first?
