Celebrate 30 years of this big fantastic classic! Every night, when the world is sleeping, big gruesome giants guzzle up whoppsy-whiffling human beans. There’s only one giant who can stop them – the BFG! He’s the kindest, friendliest giant in the world. And with his human friend Sophie tucked into his top pocket, he sets out to rid the world of the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and all their rotsome friends forever! Now in a fantastic anniversary edition with a great new cover by Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s well-loved story is an irrepressible tale of dreams, imagination and the triumph of good over evil.

  • This is so funny. I love all the made up words. Perfect for children aged seven and over to read alone but younger children may like it being read to them
