Every night, when the world is sleeping, big gruesome giants guzzle up whoppsy-whiffling human beans. And there’s only one giant who can stop them-the BFG.
He’s the kindest giant there is and, with his friend Sophie in his top pocket, he sets out to rid the world of the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and all their rotsome friends forever…
As an adult, I’d love a longer, more complex plot, but this isn’t aimed at adults. It’s aimed at children and for them this is a fantastic novel. Either for ones who can read on their own, perhaps eight or older, or for parents to read to children. The plot is just right for them.
Even though it isn’t a complex, (for an adult), novel, I still enjoyed it and would love reading it to young family members too.
The style of writing is easy to read and is able to describe imaginative things in a way children would understand and enjoy.
I don’t think anyone could not love The BFG and his way of speaking. I can imagine lots of children having a giggle at it.
There are non graphic mentions of giants eating children, but I doubt most children will find this too frightening. I know for sure my own nine year old nephew would probably love it.
It’s a quick fun read, perfect for those children who are starting to read independently.
It’s also the perfect time to start reading it because The BFG film is coming out this year around July time!
To sum up, Fun, Easy, great characters, simple language
