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? Let's hope so - otherwise the next child a gruesome giant guzzles could be YOU.

Taking her away from the orphanage she lives in to the land of the extremely unfriendly giants who, in the original draft forced the little girl to look at their giant 'clubs'. But Do you know what the BFG stood for before his publisher told him he had to think of other words for the acronym?
But the BFG's different, he's friendly Dahl sees himself as the BFG giving Sophie, children, a new way to think, different from human adults, who don't even believe in giants. It is an inventive story without doubt, and all fairy stories require you to absolutely suspend disbelief.
Lots of them include sexual and violent elements which children either don't notice sexual or thoroughly enjoy violent. When Disney gets hold of them, they lose both and become the anodyne Barbie-doll princesses cue violins-in-the-background we are used to. In that tradition, the BFG succeeds.
In the mid-to-late 20thC there was less emphasis on paedophilia than there is now, and I wonder if this book could have been written at all in the 21stC. Ironically, this book is banned in some educational districts in the US for 'teaching poor moral values' and cannibalism.
Children laugh at those sort of things.
