Sophie, a young orphan, gets picked up by the BFG (Big Friendly Giant). The BFG was blowing dreams into people's heads. Sophie and the BFG come up with a plan to stop the other giants from eating children. This is a fun book but would be extremely hard to read aloud. I absolutely loved the way that Dahl plays with words and grammar.
I really must read some more children's literature as it is so entertaining
