Category: Fiction; fantasy. If I was kidnapped by a giant in the middle of the night, I truthfully have no idea what I would do. That’s why I’m glad Sophie, the main character of The BFG, is the one getting kidnapped and not me. In this excellent book by Roald Dahl, Sophie is kidnapped by a giant during, of all times, the witching hour. Luckily, this giant, called the Big Friendly Giant, or the BFG for short (drumroll please) doesn’t eat humans like the other nine man- gobbling cannybulls in Giant Country (as he puts it). In this book, we’re right next to Sophie as she floats (thanks to a very peculiar drink), is almost eaten by one of the other giants (whose name is the Bloodbottler), sits in the BFG’s ear, and has breakfast with the queen of England. But don’t take my word for it; go read it yourself!


I'm 13, and I've been writing (in notebooks and with the computer) since I was 6. I tend to work on more stories at once (and I mean a lot more than one), and throw my self into things (for example, I'm making a short, animated series with Windows Movie Maker and Windows paint). I live in Hillsborough, New Jersey.

    The BFG was an entertaining book. It also taught a moral. That all things do not fall into a stereotype. Dahl used his entertaining voice to pull readers into the book. The tale of The BFG’s adventures is unforgetable
