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!

Totally. Because it's a very good book and very funny.
I am 8 years old and I loved listening to this book. It's very funny. It's totally good.
I read this story as a child and loved it! Now I had the great pleasure of listening to this story with my son who in turn loved it as much as I did! The narration was brilliant and was made even better by the frequent sound effects! The story was just as thrilling to listen to as I remembered! I believe we have found a family road trip favorite!
Better quality, streaming ability
All Roald Dhal stories are amazing.
Sure, with a better mic/recording equipment.
Yearning for adventure
FIX THE RECORDING QUALITY
We always listen to a children's book on the way to and from school and the BFG has accompanied us the last two weeks and it has been a joy! I have laughed aloud numerous times and the kids couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Truly great performance.
I listened to this book with my 6 year old son and 9 year old daughter.
At times I found the giant a little hard to understand but overall we enjoyed it. There was lots of laughs and although
we gave Matilda 5 stars BFG wasn't far behind.
We listened to this with our two little boys and I think we enjoyed it more than our kids! It is a very delightful and thoroughly enjoyable story.
After reading the reviews I thought I would purchase this book for my 8 and 10-year-old daughters. The 8 y/o is my reluctant reader. She was instantly mesmerized by the story, and would request listening to it upon getting into the car, at the grocery store, and so on. I now catch her stealing away to read from her library books at night, which was the original goal anyway.
She has listened to this book 4 times now even though I have purchased other audiobooks for her that she has enjoyed. She says this one is the best so far. I have to admit, I like it as well.
The narrator is pretty fantastic, the story is well written, and the small sound effects are an extra bonus.
This is REALLY a fabulous listen for all.
My kids were transfixed by this story and narrator. My 5yo daughter came up to me midway through and asked for an empty bottle so she could catch our dreams <3
