Giants aren’t always scary.

For this week’s post, I read “BFG” by Roald Dahl.  An absolute charm.  This book is a typical creative Roald Dahl book, but it is not ordinary.  So vivid in it’s story of a girl and a giant and the wonderful friendship they create.  Sophie is a young girl that witnesses a giant doing something strange in her town. He has what looks like a trumpet and he sneaks to sleeping children’s windows and sticks his trumpet in the window.  She later finds out that he collects dreams and he is emitting dreams into the minds of these young children.  This book is great.  Sophie and BFG (Big Friendly Giant) embark in an unforgettable journey to convince the Queen of England how truly horrible the other giants are.  I read this book now and wonder how terrifying it would be for young kids.  Being that it is vivid, I can see this book being scary for young students.  However, I loved this book and I highly recommend reading it if you are a Roald Dahl fan.

One thought on “It’s Monday. What Are You Reading?!

  1. I love Roald Dahl. He always challenges you to think a bit in his books and this is a good example of that. The meaner you are, it might appear that you have more power, but in reality the humble will prevail. Good review!
