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.

            one day Sophie was awake at the witching hour of the night when everyone was asleep and things that no one knew what they were, came out. Sophie got out of bed to close the curtains and curiosity got the best of her. she ducked under the curtains and peeked out on the world she saw something move in the shadows and she ran back in bed but it was too late the thing had seen her and now it was reaching it's big hand out and snatched her. to find out what happens next then read the book now.

                This book is soo heartwarming. I love how, like most fairytales, it has a happy ending. I love this book and totally recommend it to kids 6 and up. I fell in love with sophie's sad but exciting adventure with the bfg (aka, Big Friendly Giant).5 star with no questions asked.

                  This book is cute it was really well written the story made sense and was interesting at first I thought it would be horrible but after I read it I really liked it Sophie was a fun character and the BFG of course was so funny the story fell together nicely in the end I feel like the BFG and Sophie get what they want and there are lessons everywhere in the book I think everyone should read it P.S. the movie is cute to but not as good as the book
