Roald Dahl Day is celebrated on the 13th September. What better way to remember my favourite author, than to make one his books out Book of the Month for September.
The BFG stands for Big Friendly Giant, who unexpectedly spirits a little girl named Sophie out of bed, and into the land of the child-eating giants. With Sophie in his top pocket, the BFG sets off to rid the world of the big, gruesome giants who guzzle up ‘human beans’ – the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and all their rotsome friends.
Full of outrageous humour and plenty of jokes about bodily functions that children will love, this warm-hearted stories is one of Roald Dahl’s many much-loved tales that continue to be cherished by readers of all ages.
“The book is very descriptive. I like the BFG’s cave,” says Flynn. H.
“All of Roald Dahl’s book are really interesting and they are all very different. My favourite is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – it’s really exciting and you can almost taste the chocolate!” says Ethan.
There is a copy of the BFG and some other Roald Dahl books, outside my office in the sharing library, if you would like to borrow it.
