About the Author

Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Amazon.com Review

Evidently not even Roald Dahl could resist the acronym craze of the early eighties. BFG? Bellowing ferret-faced golfer? Backstabbing fairy godmother? Oh, oh ... Big Friendly Giant! This BFG doesn't seem all that F at first as he creeps down a London street, snatches little Sophie out of her bed, and bounds away with her to giant land. And he's not really all that B when compared with his evil, carnivorous brethren, who bully him for being such an oddball runt. After all, he eats only disgusting snozzcumbers, and while the other Gs are snacking on little boys and girls, he's blowing happy dreams in through their windows. What kind of way is that for a G to behave?

The BFG is one of Dahl's most lovable character creations. Whether galloping off with Sophie nestled into the soft skin of his ear to capture dreams as though they were exotic butterflies; speaking his delightful, jumbled, squib-fangled patois; or whizzpopping for the Queen, he leaves an indelible impression of bigheartedness. (Ages 9 to 12)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite books by Roald Dahl
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 20 June 2022
The BFG, by Roald Dahl, a review written by my son.

A very big book (in my opinion) and it's in the top 5 of the best by Roald Dahl and one of my favourites.

Its about a girl named 'Sophie', who lives in an orphanage, and one night she looked out of her window and saw a giant.

The main characters in the book are:

Sophie;

The BFG

And 9 other giants whose name won't be listed here.

This book gets an easy 5 stars, highly recommended if you like Roald Dahl.
