Mooi geschreven boek met goede verhaallijn over de reus die kinderen juist helpt in plaats van op te eten. Het is een mooi fantasie boek want aansluit op dromen en fantasie beelden van kinderen. Gedetailleerd en beeldend geschreven, ook de taal van de GVR zorgt voor sterkere verhaallijn.

Voorlezen is door de taal van de GVR wel lastig. ( )

This was one of my favorite books when I was little, and it was a delight to read it again. There's just something about the combination of words like scrumdidlyuptious, swashboggling, and thingalingaling with Quentin Blake's illustration that lets me know I'm in for fun.

Sophie is a bright little girl doing her best after being kidnapped by a friendly giant. She's not quite as enterprising as the titular character of [b:Matilda|39988|Matilda|Roald Dahl|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388793265s/39988.jpg|1015554], doing more reacting than instigating and getting a bit lost in the fourth act when the adults take over, but she still manages to save the day at the last minute. And it's lovely to have a girl main character with thick glasses--not something I appreciated while I was eight and un-bespectacled, but something that I do like now.

I'd completely forgotten the crazy way the BFG speaks, and I have a feeling that with trying to sound my way through the words (or, let's be honest, skipping them after the first syllable) would have either been very fun or very frustrating--maybe more fun if a parent was reading these nonsense words out loud.

I found it amusing that Dahl seems to have had quite a beef with math teachers--two of them are the victims of children's good dreams, being taught a lesson of their own. One of the most devastating moments of second grade was when my teacher refused to keep reading Matilda because the first chapter was told from the perspective of a teacher imagining the delightfully horrid ways they would describe their real feelings about their beastlier students. It gave me a smile to see that attitude showing up again.

All in all, a charming little book, imaginative and fairy-tale-like as always, and with Dahl's characteristic darkness interwoven with the fun, proving that he understands how children can handle stories that aren't all sunshine and roses. BFG's as grumpy as Gandalf while Sophie is a model child, and they play off each other perfectly.

Quote Roundup

49) "What I say and what I mean is two different things," the BFG announced rather grandly.
Dahl might very well say this about a lot of his work! One of the best parts of his writing is having his adults speak more pompously and circumlocutiously (hee hee!) than the children in a way that young readers can still tell isn't quite getting across the meaning.

53) "Words," he said, "is oh such a twitch-tickling problem to me all my life. So you must simply be patient and stop squibbling. As I am telling you before, I know exactly what words I am wanting to say, but somehow or other they is always getting squiff-squiddled around."
A problem that any language learner, but especially the children reading this book, can relate to. ( )

Sophie is an orphan who gets taken away one night by the Big Friendly Giant, aka BFG, to Giant Country after seeing him through her window. There, BFG tells Sophie all about the other giants who go off at night and eat humans (the BFG doesn't eat humans). After finding out they're planning on going back to her home country to eat a bunch of school children, Sophie finally convinces the BFG that enough is enough!

I wish I would have read this book as a kid! I was giggling to myself at the names and words BFG would use. I know if I read this when I was younger I would have cracked up and rolled around in a fit! This is a funny, fast read. I can see everyone at least smiling at some of the words being said. It's just a bit silly to be honest. ( )

like all of dahl's œuvre, this book is a delightful entertaining fable with clever wordplay and a lot of really unfortunate imperialist undertones. the inspiring tale of a vegan who stands up to society ( )

Hello, my name is Chelsea and I have loved The BFG beyond all reason since I was a little kid. I loved the weird animated movie from the nineties and I loved Disney's CGI creation that came out just a few years ago. It's like I'm incapable of not loving this story in any form it's in. When I was little, this was my comfort book. Whenever I was anxious or feeling unwell, I read this book. I read it when I was sick so many times that my original copy has orange juice stains on the corners of the pages.

As far as the plot goes, it's an original one. An orphan, Sophie, witnesses a giant, The BFG, blowing dreams into the windows of her neighbor's children's room. Except, it's just after midnight and at the time she has no idea what he's doing. The BFG reacts in what he views as a logical manner: he kidnaps Sophie and brings her back to Giant Country. The story that follows involves cannibalism, truly horrid vegetables, a visit to Queen Elizabeth, and a military campaign against the evil giants themselves.

Despite all these odd points, it remains one of my favorite books of all time and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to know what a good middle-grade book is like. ( )

The BFG captures the imagination of every adult and child with an imagination worth capturing. Wonderfully written, witty, courageous, understated and with such a strong morality, this book is a treaure for young and old readers alike. We have been blessed with the gift of language and writers like Roald Dahl allow themselves to roll in the hay with letters and words. The result is a story with a big heart and a dancing theme.
