The Lovereading4Kids comment
Roald Dahl's BFG in glorious full colour! 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.

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
'Human beans is not really believing in giants, is they? Human beans is not thinking we exist.' 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?
See The BFG movie! 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.
