This is the story of a little girl who meets the Big Friendly Giant and together they are trying to stop the other ugly giants to eat more humans.
When you look at the picture on the cover of the book „The BFG“ you see a giant with a little girl standing in his palm. The giant has big ears and a smile on his face. That’ s because the giant is called: The Big Friendly Giant. All the other existent nine giants are ugly and really dangerous. They are called by names like Bonecruncher, Childchewer, Flushlumpeater and other disgusting names. And what do these giants do? Of course eating human beans.
They roam around the world trying to catch, „Human beans from Jersey is tasting of cardigans…Danes from Denmark is tasting ever so much of a dog…from Panama is tasting very strong of hats“, and so on you might think about the rest on your own.
The story of the encounter of the orphan Sophie and the BFG begins when she wakes up in the witching hour. She looks out of her window and sees the Giant walking around in her street with a trumpet in his hand and from time to time placing the trumpet into an open windows and blowing it, but no sound comes out of it, because…
But what the trumpet is good for, Sophie and you will find out when the friendly giant takes her with him into the land of the giants. Here she learns why the BFG is talking in such a strange manner, „What a spliffling whoopsy room we is in! It is so gigantuous I is needing bicirculers and telescoops…“, where the dreams come from, what snozzcumbers, frobscottle and whizzpoppers are and of course here she is talking with him about the bad behaviour of eating humans. „Humans have never done them any harm.“ But althoug the giant sometimes mixes up words and meanings, „What i mean and what I say is two different things“, he is more wise than Sophie thaught, „That is what the little piggy-wig is saying every day…I has never done any harm to the human bean so why whould he be eating me?“
The drawings in this book are by Sir Quentin Blake who illustrated many children books and of course the most of Roald Dahl (1916-1990). The welsh Author Dahl wrote besides the well known stories for children also a couple stories for adults always with an unexpected end.
But back to the story of Sophie and the BFG. They want to stop the giants to eat more humans and therefore they need the help of the Queen. „Oh, please stop them.“
