BFG stands for Big Friendly Giant, and I must say, this is a great British book. Those illustrations don't hurt either.

I think the BFG is really cool. What it is about is a orphan named Sophie wbo is snatched from her bed in the middle of the night by the BFG (who's a giant)and is told that she has to live with the BFG forever. Plus she has to watch out for the other disgusting giants. But then Sophie and the BFG cook up a plan to rid the world of children eating giants. If yo want to find out more than read the BFG!

This book is a great book! We really like Roald Dahl’s use of words! The giant’s language is hilarious. And the idea of a giant going to see the Queen of England and having a whizzpopper in her palace is absurd and we love it.

I liked the book because there was this Giant named BFG (Big Friendly Giant)who went in this town and steels this little girl who lives in a orphanige and see him.BFG tells her all these stories about other giants and him catching dreams. Then, one day a gaint called the Bloodbottler say the girl and then came in BFG's cave to find her ,but he couldn't.
