How is it that J.K. Rowling\'s apparently simple fantasy school stories have so completely won the hearts and heads of child and adult readers all over the world? Is it that an exceptional marketing campaign has bamboozled otherwise cool-headed and cold-hearted critics? Or is it that our era has a deep-seated need for calm and order to help us to cope with new and distant horizons? Or could it be that children yearn for the magical lives of characters that contrast with their own increasingly constrained and protected existence?

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!
