Summary
Enjoy the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of another world. The BFG is a Big Friendly Giant, so he's nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24 feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and likes to keep to himself
