Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The BFG by Roald Dahl, read by David Walliams.

On a dark, silvery moonlit night, Sophie is snatched from her bed by a giant.

Luckily it is the Big Friendly Giant, the BFG, who only eats snozzcumbers and glugs frobscottle.

But there are other giants in Giant Country.

Fifty-foot brutes who gallop far and wide every night to find human beans to eat.

Can Sophie and her friend the BFG stop them? Let's hope so - otherwise the next child a gruesome giant guzzles could be YOU.

David Walliams is a multi-award-winning British comedian, actor and writer, best known for the comedy series Little Britain, but his acting work includes plays, dramas and films. He is also the author of hugely successful children's books, including two illustrated by Quentin Blake - Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator.

Inspiring Goodness through Entertainment

Learning is always fun through entertainment. Especially when it comes to learning values that seems to get into children s mind without them even realising the normalisation process that begins there.

My reviews on the BFG
I really really love it but I don’t think that the narrator is the best one I think Lewis Kirk could be better
I recommend it to anyone who is interested in books written by David Williams or Roald Dahl

This was just as funny as Roald Dahl's other books

First the narrator (David Walliams) was wonderful. I felt like I was right there with Sophie and the BFG. The story itself was so much fun to listen to and hilarious. Not to mention all the funny weird words the BFG uses.

Kept the kids and adults entertained while driving

We really enjoyed the BFG as we drove across the Nullarbor with an 8 & 5 year old. Narration bright the story to life and at times was difficult to hear with the road noise.

We recommend this book.

Childhood Favourite

Beautiful narrations with great character distinctions. It created a child-like imagery and was very nostalgic for me.
