Captured by a giant! Had she been carried off inside the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any inside the other giants— rather than the BFG— she would have soon become breakfast. The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a quantity of nice little chiddlers, she decides she ought to stop them once and for all. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. He is far too nice and jumbly. And the BFG is going to assist her!
Evidently not even Roald Dahl could resist the acronym craze of the early eighties. Backstabbing fairy godmother? Oh, oh. This BFG doesn't seem all that F at first as he creeps down a London street, snatches little Sophie out of her bed, and bounds away with her to giant land. What kind of way is that for a G to behave? Bellowing ferret-faced golfer? BFG? Massive Friendly Giant! And he's not really all that B when compared with his evil, carnivorous brethren, who bully him for being such an oddball runt. After all, he eats only disgusting snozzcumbers, and also though the other Gs are snacking on small boys and girls, he's blowing happy dreams in through their windows.
The BFG is a single of Dahl's most lovable character creations. Whether galloping off with Sophie nestled in to the soft skin of his ear to capture dreams as though they had been exotic butterflies; speaking his delightful, jumbled, squib-fangled patois; or whizzpopping for the Queen, he leaves an indelible impression of bigheartedness. (Ages 9 to 12)
