Sophie did not even believe in giants, but on a fitful night of sleep at the orphanage she was snatched right out of the window in her nightie. Luck have it her way that she was taken by the Big Friendly Giant and not by any other of the man-eating giants that snatch little girls and boys from their beds, especially not the Childchewer.
The B.F.G. takes Sophie to giant country for fear of being discovered by others, but when Sophie hears of all the other giants and how gruesome, nasty and mean they are, she convinces the B.F.G. to help put an end to the giants' evil ways. Who would have thought that a giant would ever have breaky with the Queen of England or that dreams have to be captured in a net like butterflies? 224 pages Ages 9-12
