Product description

Review

"Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake are uncanny in their understanding of what children like to read and see. Sophie, an eight-year-old orphan, is kidnapped by the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) and taken to Giantland, where [her] alliance with the BFG and the queen of England results in the capture of the nine evil giants. Children will enjoy this book." --The New York Times Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

There are few things more terrifying than being snatched out of your bed at night by a giant four times as tall as the tallest human, with a stride as long as a tennis court. This giant has been lurking on your street, blowing something from a glass jar into children's bedrooms. He sees you. Next moment you are in his grip and rushing at a fantastic speed through the darkness. When all this happens to little Sophie she starts to wonder how she will be cooked for breakfast. She has much to learn about the BFG - for he is no ordinary Crunching Giant. Shorter and far more 'jumbly' than his hideous neighbours, the BFG does have truly enormous ears, like truck wheels, and hearing dreams is not the least of his talents. He has a peculiar way with words and speaks of dreadful giant deeds such as 'gobblefunking'. Gobblefunking and worse is afoot round the world and Sophie things it is time that the Queen of England was told. Her Majesty may have to put up with a rather disgusting nightmare, but Sophie and the BFG have an ingenious plan to make us all safe in our beds at night. Roald Dahl, the most popular living author of books for children, has come up with a very special treat in The BFG. Quenting Blake has illustrated the hilarity to perfection. Dahl's world of giants is enough to strike terror in the boldest heart and what the RAF have to do with it, or dream-bottling, or 'snozzcumbers' (the filthiest vegetable in the world), children will discover for themselves in what must be Dahl's most startling and wonderful tale since Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite books by Roald Dahl
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 June 2022
The BFG, by Roald Dahl, a review written by my son.

A very big book (in my opinion) and it's in the top 5 of the best by Roald Dahl and one of my favourites.

Its about a girl named 'Sophie', who lives in an orphanage, and one night she looked out of her window and saw a giant.

The main characters in the book are:

Sophie;

The BFG

And 9 other giants whose name won't be listed here.

This book gets an easy 5 stars, highly recommended if you like Roald Dahl.
