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? Let’s hope so – otherwise the next child a gruesome giant guzzles could be YOU.
This story by Roald Dahl is about a young girl named Sophie who is whisked away from her home in an orphanage by the BFG – the Big Friendly Giant. He tells her about his job, to blow dreams into the rooms of children, and also about his terrifying neighbours – other giants who EAT children.
