“Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian…[His] stories work better in audio than in print.” –The New York Times Captured by a giant! The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

- Oh my goodness, I forgot how delightful this little book was. I haven't read it since I was a kid, and I just wanted a fairly quick listen that was fun and light, and this delivered. Roald Dahl is a genius, and David Walliams is a great narrator. He has different voices for all the characters, and he really draws you into the story. It's a wild, fantastical romp through a world created by perhaps the most beloved children's author of all time. One of them, anyway.
