The BFG submitted by leehannah on June 17, 2012, 7:07pm I have never even thought of anything like giants before in my life until I came across this book. I started to think about fantasy things and more and more things that are made up, rather than realistic.

BFG submitted by shreyam on June 27, 2016, 3:20pm A wonderful book about friendship. It is really funny and a favorite !!

The BFG - book submitted by Fevvers - STAR473 on July 10, 2016, 4:14am I still remember my 2nd grade teacher reading this (and other Dahl books) to our class. It encourages readers to engage with creative wordplay, which is really cool for kids especially. It's a sweet, funny story with a determined girl captured by - and then befriending - a gentle giant. The other giants are scary, but Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) plan to thwart them.

Just as great as I remember! submitted by ClaireKittle on July 15, 2016, 4:48pm I reread this book to prepare for the movie. It was just as great as I remember from my childhood. The friendship between the BFG and Sophie is amazing. I love that it makes me giggle like a little girl again!
