By Roald Dahl

Illustrated by Quentin Blake  

Published in 1998 by Puffin

208 pages -Ages 9-12

Sophie was an orphan with a pretty boring life. That is until she was kidnapped by the B.F.G. (the Big Friendly Giant)! “A big friendly giant?!?”, you may be asking yourself! Well, yes! He is different from all the other giants. First of all the other giants re much bigger than the BFG and secondly the BFG doesn’t eat people like the other giants. Sophie ends up living with the BFG and she convinces the BFG they have to stop the other -GIANT- giants from eating people and this starts an exciting adventure!

The BFG is exciting, amazing and rocks (E.A.R.)! (OH- the BFG also has HUGE ears).

I recommend the book to everyone. It is good for advanced young readers because it isn’t too scary and it is a great story. Kids of all ages and adults will like the story.

I give The BFG four out of five book worms!

  1. This was one of my favorites as a kid.

  2. One of my favorite Roald Dahl books. I was going to suggest that you read “Boy” if you hadn’t already but I see that you have. I loved all of his books but I think my favorite was probably “The Witches” with “Mathilda” running a close second.

  3. I’ve reread this book so many times, it’s falling apart. Thanks for the reminder that it’s time for me to read it again.

  4. Movie coming soon 🙂
