Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Great book

One of the best narrated books, fantastic children's classic brought to life. Length of the book also makes it great value.

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.
