The BFG | Roald Dahl
Do you believe in giants? If you don't, you won't like this story, nor this Review because the letters B, F, and G in The BFG by Roald Dahl stand for Big Friendly Giant.
The plot follows a little orphan girl named Sophie. One night she got out of bed to look out the window. Outside, she saw this BIG BLACK... THING! Whatever it was, it was twice as tall as the orphanage – and it was a big orphanage!
From across the street, the thing grabbed Sophie and ran faster and faster! Finally it reached its home and set Sophie on the table.
"Will he eat me?" thought Sophie.
No! He was big and friendly and, well, a GIANT but BFG wasn't going to eat her. Sophie then learned that there are other ghastly giants, three times the size of BFG, that go on eating children every night!
Sophie had to do something and the two newfound friends form a plan. What if it doesn't work? Will Sophie get eaten and will BFG be put in the zoo with crocadiles and snakes – or in BFG's muddled way, crockadidlies and snakesiens?
I won't say any more. Yes, another laugh-out-loud tale for your collection! See my review on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. •
Aspiring to be a writer one day, Mackenzie's current favourite author is Roald Dahl. This dynamic 9-year-old is ready to tell you all about his stories and more! What better way to find out which children's books are good than to choose them from Mackenzie's blossoming collection of Children's Book Reviews?
