Roald Dahl's The BFG

March is reading awareness month, so I wanted to share with you a reminder of a childhood classic.  If you remember The BFG by Roald Dahl, you might know that it was released as an animated version back in 1989, well, did you know they re-released it last year?  Yes, they did, so make sure to keep reading!
I am going to share other books with you, leading up to March, but wanted to kick it off with an animated adaptation, just to change it up for you all!

Story Synopsis
One moonlit night, little orphan Sophie is snatched from her bed by an awesome giant who whisks her away on a magical, thrilling, and funny adventure. Unlike scary giants such as the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater, and the Bonecruncher, the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a good giant who blows sweet dreams into the bedroom windows of children as they slumber.

When Sophie learns that a monstrous crew of meanies is off to England to gobble up innocent boys and girls, she sets out to stop them once and for all, with the help of her new, rather large, friend.

Was this a book you read as a child, or read to your children?

  1. I didn't read it. It looks like a good movie and book. Isaak went to see it with my sister.
