The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a delightful, funny and exciting story about a special friendship between two people from different worlds – a giant and a child. As the story develops it shows how trust and love develops between them. It also shows that bullying must not be tolerated and Dahl is at his might best here by eventually ensuring the big bad giants get their comeuppance whilst the big friendly giant wins the day alongside the little girl Sophie. The text is perfectly complemented with colour illustrations by Quentin Blake.
In July The BFG movie is released! Directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Disney and inspired by Roald Dahl, it stars Mark Rylance as The BFG himself and newcomer Ruby Barnhill as young orphan Sophie.

The Good Book Guide Review. The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) has never been to school and so speaks only almost-English. With the help of Sophie ('a norphan' and a 'human bean') he masterminds the destruction of his malicious brethren - Childchewer. Bonecrusher. Maidmasher. Another Dahl Blake triumph.
The BFG by Roald Dahl
This delightful edition of The BFG, by Roald Dahl is illustrated in full colour by Quentin Blake and accompanied by the Puffin Audiobooks CD read by author and comedian, David Walliams. The audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios.
On a dark, silvery moonlit night, Sophie is snatched from her bed by a giant. Luckily it is the Big Friendly Giant, the BFG, who only eats snozzcumbers and glugs frobscottle. But there are other giants in Giant Country. Fifty foot brutes who gallop far and wide every night to find human beans to eat. Can Sophie and her friend the BFG stop them? Let's hope so - otherwise the next child a gruesome giant guzzles could be YOU.
Now you can listen to The BFG and other Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!
Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
