The BFG

Occasionally, as he told his stories, my father would stride up and down waving his arms and waggling his fingers. But mostly he would sit close to me on the edge of my bunk and speak very softly.
"The Big Friendly Giant makes his magic powers out of the dreams that children dream when they are asleep," he said.
"How?’"I asked. "Tell me how, Dad."

So it goes that in Chapter Two of his outstanding 1975 tale Danny the Champion of the World, Roald Dahl first breathed life into the notion of the BFG – the Big Friendly Giant, ‘three times as tall as ordinary men and his hands were as big as wheelbarrows.’

Seven years later, Roald Dahl saw fit to give this extraordinary character his own stage. Again in close collaboration with master-illustrator Quentin Blake, The BFG was born, a properly epic adventure underpinned with all of Roald Dahl’s wit and heart.

When the young orphan Sophie finds herself seemingly kidnapped by a strange, cloaked giant, initial alarm finally gives way to the deepest of friendships and the discovery of wisdom and courage in the smallest of places. Held aloft by Roald Dahl’s ceaseless invention and power of wordplay, The BFG ranks as one of his greatest triumphs and for over three decades has been a treasured part of children’s lives the world over.
