The BFG - Roald Dahl

Woohoo, we are seriously excited for the new BFG Movie, adapted from Roald Dahls Book The BFG. This is an absolute classic and if you haven't read it... now is the chance!!
There are Giants in this world, but they are all different sizes. The ones that you think are big are actually very small giants. There are really big Giants who like to eat children and they are the scary ones.

The BGF is a friendly Giant who likes to catch dreams, spread joy and safety, however, he was seen doing this by a little girl called Sophie who then has to take her. They become firm friends and together they plan to stop the Big Giants from eating other children.
Sounds quite horrific doesn't it, but the way it is written is fun and lighthearted. It shows trust and friendship and love. Roald Dahl uses such fun words which keep the children entertained - as well as great reading skills.

As the new Movie is coming out Puffin Books have produced a new cover for the book with some extra added activities and lessons on how to draw at the back of the book.
