She spots a giant , and suffers the consequences ! She is taken to giant land ! She learns about the giants and what they do each night before making a plan to stop their evil once and for all……..

    This is a very good book as there’s a kind giant and all the other giants are really rude and mean and eat children for lunch!Will the BFG stop them?

    This book is very weird but in a good way because It’s about a little girl who gets picked up from her bedroom from a big but friendly giant. They even meet the queen!!!

  14. ecoyle says:

    I like this book because a little girl went to sleep and couldn’t because light was in her face and so she couldn’t sleep she went to close it but saw a giant and it brought her to his home and she had to look through a hole to see where she was being taken to.when they were there,the giant let her out and then she got scared because she thought that he might eat her but she was wrong because he didn’t he was friendly?.

  24. fnkwocha says:

    I really enjoyed the BFG because I liked the character of Sophie and the giant is very funny because of the way he talks.My favourite part was when they went to the Queens palace and the giant drank the fizzy Frobscottle and they all let one off!

  25. ymulugetta says:

  26. lnecea says:

    This book is amazing and it’s like whenever you stop you don’t know what happens next??

  27. csimmons says:

    My favourite part of this book is when the BFG takes the little girl to where he lives and eventually becomes friends with the BFG

  28. Daniel Nyima Nguo says:

    I’d rate this a 4star because it’s a really good book about a girl who is a orphan and is in a really really bad orphanage with a very strict person to care for them (she doesn’t really care for them) then at 3AM (the Giants hour ) she hears a noise outside the window then next thing she knows she is in the hands of the BFG (big friendly giant) then she realises he is the only nice giant she will meet. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  29. risaacs says:

    It is really fun I like the giant trap because it is really cool and the leader of the Giants is really mean to the bfg

  30. rrostam says:

    It was so cool when at the end she lived with the royal family but she went with the bfg

  31. rhirt says:

    The B.F.G. is a story of friendship with two different creatures that don’t have much in common.I really liked this book because it is exciting and some bits are slightly more scary.

  32. kgravil says:

    The BFG is a nice giant because he is very tall

  33. bdavies says:

    I really enjoyed reading this book because at first, you think that the BFG is bad but the more you read you will understand that he is a great character.

  34. rboamah says:

    I love this story and I’ve also watched the movie, but the book is better by far! I like the idea of putting dreams inside a bottle and the BFG going around the neighbourhood- pouring dreams into each window. Roald Dahl is a great writer.

  35. kmahmood says:

    This book is amazing just like all the Roald Dahl books but best of all this one shows you the enchanting friendship of a little orphan girl and a Big Friendly Giant.

  36. dsampson says:

    I like this book because it’s very hard to know what happens next and when something does happen it comes by surprise.Its also really funny and has really strange ideas.Its so good it’s been turned into a movie!Its also creative and Rhoald Dahl put lots of thought into this book.The BFG is really stupid and gets his words muddled up.It has some amazing characters and some great speeches.
    Everyone who hasn’t read this book I recommend this book to you.

  37. Mr Ricketts says:

    I enjoyed reading this book. Especially the opening where it appears that the BFG might be bad but as you read on you get to understand more about the BFG character.

  38. khale says:

    I found this book good because the BFG’s actions are really described and explained.I liked the part where Sophie was in the car and they used the car as roller skates

  39. fpatten says:

    I loved this book because of its lovely characters and my favourite character is theBFG. My favourite bit is probably when they go to dream land. You should read this book

  40. Otto Meyric Rothstein says:

    I liked this book so much I even made a snozcumber

  41. rrostam2 says:

    Very funny always makes my day

  42. ymulugetta says:

    I like this book because there’s a little girl how goes with a giant for a adventure.

    1. ymulugetta says:

      I like the bfg because he stolen a girl to help him .
      But she DANGER.

  43. Ms Fee says:

    This is one of the books that I remember being a bed time story for me and my sister. I love the part of the story that explores dreams – how they’re caught, mixed and shared. I would love to spend a night dream-catching with the BFG!

  44. llincoln says:

    This book is really funny and when I read it, it really made me laugh. I especially liked the made up words like snozcumber and whiz poppers.

    1. tom.milne1@btinternet.com says:

      When The BFG was translated into Swedish, they wondered how to translate ‘whizzpoppers’ – and came up with ‘trouser explosions’! Mr Milne

  45. fsmith says:

    The BFG is a lovely story about a tall giant who blows dreams into little people’s heads until one day a small little girl is awake in her bed reading when she hears a Big Bang she sees a massive creature who her away she grows to like the creature and get the queen to fight the gigantic bad giant and it is a happy ending.

  50. Agnes Milne says:

    This is my FAVOURITE Roald Dahl book of all time as I loved the BFG’s way of asking whether he was right or left instead of right or wrong
