The BFG by Roald Dahl


The BFG by Roald Dahl
Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Book Description: Sophie, a little orphan girl, is captured by a giant. Not just any giant, but the Big Friendly Giant, which is very fortunate for her. He does NOT eat human beans like the other giants that live near him. Together they come up with a plan that involves the Queen of England to stop the other nine giants from eating humans.

My Take: LOVED it! Great story that keeps you wondering. What I liked the best was the wonderful words that Mr. Dahl makes up for the giant to speak. They are just fun to pronounce and hear out loud. Definitely, a good book to read out loud to your children or a classroom!

I loved RD as a kid, I've still got a few books on my shelf, you've inspired me to pick them up and read them again :-)

I've heard many good things about
Dahl, and your review sounds as if
this book is another winner.

Lately I have enjoyed books written
for children, shall check this one
out from the library.
