First published in 1982
story starts in an orphanage where one of the chilldren, Sophie, gets taken away by a big giant also
known as the BFG. The giant has especially big ears for a giant and can listen to things no human can hear. The giant collects
dreams that he blows into children's rooms. One day,
when he was blowing a dream into a child's room he heard a persons heart beat . He saw it was a little girl
that lived in an orphanage named Sophie.
BFG took Sophie out of her bed and brought her into a place that wasn't even in the atlas. She was taken into a cave that
was huge and had a huge desk and chair. Inside the cave was also a huge shelf that was filled with bottles of dreams, but
Sophie didn't know the bottles were filled with dreams. Sophie thought the BFG was going to eat her, but instead the BFG told
Sophie about the other child eating giants and what kind of child they prefere. So then Sophie understood that the BFG was a friendly
non-eating child giant.The BFG told Sophie what the child-eating giants names were. The child eating giants
were the Fleshlumpeater, Childchewer, Bonecruncher, Manhugger, Meatdripper, Maidmasher, Gizzardgulper, Bloodbottler and
Butcher Boy. The BFG wasn't one of them because he disliked their ways and BFG is short for Big Friendly Giant.
The BFG and Sophie went off to England to find the Queen. The Queen commanded the Head of the Army's to help capture
the nine giants. The two of them took all the nine giants off into a hole in England with the Head of the Army's
help with helicopters.In the hole, even if the giants stand on each other they are still not tall enough to reach the
top. For the BFG he got to get a castle big enough for him to stand in right next to the Queen's castle as a reward. For Sophie there was a cottage right in between the Queen's castle and the BFG's
castle as reward fro her.
The setting starts
in Sophie's orphanage where Sophie sees the BFG. The next scene in the BFG's cave where Sophie was taken away by
the BFG. The third setting in the book is the Queen of England's castle where Sophie and the BFG tries to get help from
the Queen to capture the child eating giants.The fourth setting is the Giant Country where the helicopters are trying to capture
the giants. The last setting of the book is the city that the Queen lives in where the queen asked people to build a
house for the BFG and Sophie to live in beside her castle.
The three main characters in the book are
the Queen of England, Sophie and The BFG. The Queen of England helped the BFG and Sophie capture the child-eating Giants.
Sophie is an orphan that was taken away by the BFG and found out that the BFG was in fact a big friendly giant.
So Sophie helped the BFG capture the child-eating giants. The BFG is a big friendly giant that thinks eating children is cruel
and fights against it.
BFG is a very good book. This author whom I believe was very good past away in 1990. Nevertheless Roald Dahl's books are
still very popular as of today. I recommend this book to a any preson with a very good imagination to enter
this fantasy world. I think this book is really appealing to me because I really wanted to also kill the child-eating
giant's.By the same author Roald Dahl, I also enjoyed Charlie and the Chocolete Factory eventhough I was only
in grade three.
Some of the other books
Roald Dahl wrote were like the Charlie and the Chcolete Factory, Charlie and the Glass Elevator, Matilda and James and the
Giant Peach.Those books were really well writen and were really exciting. All of the books have to have something that you
have to imagine about. That is why I recomend the books for people that have a really good imagination.
