I love Roald Dahl, so this book was amazing. It was so funny and I love how determined all the characters are. I bought it at an airport, and when I got on the plane I couldn't put it down. I would probably recommend it for ages 7 and up.

Enjoyed this book. I have also seen the film on my television. The BFG stands for the Big Friendly Giant. It is about a little girl called Sophie who meets the BFG they go for adventures. it teaches about being kind, it's an adventure set in London with bad giants and it is up to Sophie and the BFG to get rid of the bad giants. Something funny I liked was the BFG called farting Whizzpopping...and it is a sign of being happy. I recommend this book to my friends and family, both girls and boys will like this book.

This book is about a big friendly giant. Other giants eat people but BFG blows dreams. Its a fiction and my favourite character is Sophie. She was brave, smart and intelligent.

I think the book was amazing. It was exciting that Sophie and the BFG defeated the bad giants. I liked that the BFG could hear and catch dreams and blows them into children's bedrooms.

I really liked Sophie because she made a plan to save people in the world.

BFG is nice. I don’t like the others they’re scary. Loved the BFG helping children have good dreams.

I enjoyed this story because I like that they got rid of all the bad giants. My favourite character is 'The BFG' because he is kind & helpful. I like that the BFG says 'human beans' instead of human beings! I would recommend this story to other children because it can inspire us to make our own story.

I really enjoyed the BFG, I liked Sophie as she wanted to be friends with the giant. This kept me hanging as I read a chapter a day & I also then watched the film. I would recommend this book.

I would recommend this book to all, weather you read it yourself or you are read to. I thought this book was very interesting. It made me scared and happy all at the same time. Scared because of the mean giants but happy that the BFG finally had a friend in Sophie and her him. I do wish the BFG had stayed around or visited Sophie though in the end.

It was a very wholesome book and I enjoyed reading it. My favourite character was the BFG because I felt sorry for him and all he wanted to do was make people have good dreams. I would definitely recommend this book.
