Eight-year-old orphan Sophie receives the shock of her life when she dares to peek outside her window during the “witching hour.”
She is spotted and snatched from her room by a giant of a man, who whisks her away to Giant Country. This could prove to be unfortunate because, as Sophie learns from her large captor, “Giants is all cannybully and murderful! And they does gobble up human beans!”
Luckily for the girl, she is under the protection of the Big Friendly Giant (BFG for short) who is the only Giant who doesn’t eat people. While his fellow Giants go throughout the world gobbling up people every night, the BFG, along with Sophie, try to come up with a plan to stop these monsters. But what can one little girl and a friendly giant do against such odds?
The BFG, by Roald Dahl, is a classic tale of friendship, overcoming difficulties, and, of course, Frobscottle and whizzpopping.
