Publisher Description

“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 Times Captured 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!

    " This was such a fun book to listen to with my children before we watched the movie. They (like me) liked the book better, of course! With all the silly words in this book, it was so much better having it on audiobook. "

About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was one of the greatest storytellers of all time. He was born in Llanduff, South Wales, of Norwegian parents, in 1916, and educated in English boarding schools. In search of adventure, the young Dahl took a job with Shell Oil in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force as a fighter pilot, almost dying in a plane crash in 1942. It was following this “monumental bash on the head” and a meeting with the author C. S. Forester that Dahl’s writing career began, with articles for magazines such as the New Yorker. He wrote successful novellas and short stories for adults, such as Tales of the Unexpected, before concentrating on children’s stories. The first of these, James and the Giant Peach, in 1960, was followed by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and an unbroken string of hugely successful, bestselling works. His numerous honors include the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement and numerous Edgar Awards.
