Review

The BFG stands for Big Friendly Giant, who unexpectedly spirits a little girl named Sophie out of bed, and into the land of the child-eating giants.  With Sophie in his top pocket, the BFG sets off to rid the world of the big, gruesome giants who guzzle up 'human beans' - the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and all their rotsome friends.

Full of outrageous humour and plenty of jokes about bodily functions that children will love, this warm-hearted stories is one of Roald Dahl's many much-loved tales that continue to be cherished by readers of all ages.
