"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 TimesCaptured 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!Soon to be a Steven Spielberg film!From the Compact Disc edition.

Fantastic read by David Walliams - great voices for each character. Sound effects help set the mood of the story. My Grade 1-er loves it.

One of those magical, funny stories that has the power to transform even the most reluctant reader into a veritable bookworm. The BFG is not your average bone-crunching, child-munching giant, and his adventures with the human girl Sophie are every bit as quirky and fun as you'd expect from a Roald Dahl story. The newly released audio book, narrated by David Williams, is particularly great. Be wary, though, of Dahl's flippant racism, particularly in the passages about the countries where the other giants do their munching.
