Fifty foot brutes who gallop far and wide every night to find human beans to eat. Can Sophie and her friend the BFG stop them?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great! This novel always filled me with wonder and delight as a child. There is so much new to discover and the stakes are high without being scary or too mature. A must-read if you love Dahl's work.
