An exquisite 30th anniversary edition of The BFG - Roald Dahl's much-loved story of a little girl, Sophie, and a Big Friendly Giant. This large format paperback comes in a beautiful, ingeniously designed slipcase and is a gloriumptious gift for Roald Dahl fans and book collectors. 'Human beans is not really believing in giants, is they? Human beans is not thinking we exist.' 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? Listen to THE BFG and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! inspired by the revolting Twits.

I love this book so much everybody should read it

I like this book because there are so many things that makes the book good

I like the book because it gets you hooked and you want to keep reading in my opinion I like the movie and the book it's fun to read but I like the book better cause it gives you a lot of details I wold recommend it for 3rd and 4th and it has a very nice conclusion in my opinion it shows a lesson that every one is diffrent in size.

Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Giant. Thankfully, the BFG is friendly, calm, and he does not eat human beans. But, there were bad Giants out there who did eat human beans and snatched kids out of their beds. So, they try to capture the giants. Will they survive or go through terror? This book is recommended to 4th and 5th graders.

the book has shown me in real life that it is not a group is bad it is just serpent people

This is about a little girl named Sophie. She was very tired and could not sleep who decided to look out the window. There she spots a very tall man who is blowing things into peoples windows. The man then proceeds to kidnap her and take her to his cave. Where he explains that he is the BFG aka the Big Friendly Giant. He catches dreams and blows them into bedrooms where kids can have good dreams at night. Then he tells her about the other giants. They run off at night and eat "human beans" from around the world, except for Greece because the "human beans" taste like grease. Sophie then comes up with the idea to stop them. But it is very complicated and might not work. Can she successfully pull it off and save millions of kids? This is a very interesting book that makes you want to keep reading. I recommend this book to people of all ages.
