Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The BFG, read by actor, writer, and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios.
The BFG is a nice and jumbly giant. In fact, he is the only big friendly giant in Giant Country. All the other giants are big bonecrunching brutes, and now the BFG and his friend Sophie must stop them guzzling up little human beans - with some help from Her Majester, the Queen.
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 five hugely successful children's books, including two illustrated by Quentin Blake - Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator.

"The best book ever"
I am 8 and I love all the Roald Dahl books!
It was really well read and I listened to it in 3 days. I had to keep asking my mummy for her I pad to listen to the rest.
This is the best book I ever read!!
It was really well written and read. Wow can books get any better.

Loved this book as a child and it is still brilliant. Well read and even the sound effects helped with the flow of the story. Worth a listen.
Dahl's book has been brought to life. I felt as though I was there in the book
One of the best narrated books, fantastic children's classic brought to life. Length of the book also makes it great value.
"A really well read great story."
I would listen to this again and again.
David Walliams brings the story and characters to life.
"Classic story told very well"
David Walliams delivers a very good performance of this classic Dahl story. I would encourage parents to buy this and play it to their children if they are unable to read the book themselves to their children.
This is the story of a young girl who is befriended by the Big Friendly Giant (The BFG). They go on an adventure together which includes the Queen of England no less. They team up with the British army and Royal Air Force to travel back to the land of the giants and bring back the rest of the giants, who are big but definitely not friendly!
Together they bring back to England all the bad giants and put them in a hole do the 'human beans' can see them as they eat only the horrible Snozcumber.
In the end the BFG is made the official Royal Dream Blower, responsible for blowing good dreams in through the bedroom windows of children. As well as capturing the bad dreams so children don't get scared.
I enjoyed reading this book when I was a child and I enjoy listening to it even now as a 38year old.
