BFG
BFG | Roald Dahl
224 posts | 608 read | 5 reading | 77 to read
Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg! Starring Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Bill Hader, and Adam Godley. 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!"

The BFG is a story about Sophie, a young orphan girl who is taken from her bed one night by a giant (the Big Friendly Giant). At first, she is afraid he might eat her, but the BFG does not eat humans. Sophie and the BFG become great friends as he keeps her hidden from the other giants and even takes her dream catching. When they hear that the other giants are headed to England to eat more little children, they come up with a plan to stop them.

Mehso-so

The story started quite interesting and fast but then nothing much happened in the middle and i so didn't expect it would end with the humans just dumping the giants into a huge hole and then torturing them by making them eat snozzcumbers forever?! The characters were all okay, well done was especially the BFG with his unique talking and the pictures were drawn really cute and did fit in perfectly fine!

🎶Mr Sandman, bring me a dream🎶

1. The scene of making dreams and nightmares has stuck with me since I first read it as a kid.
2. I once wrote a story about an urban explorer in an abandoned hotel. I gave myself nightmares for a month of something following me that I couldn‘t see but could always hear.
3. I hate it. 😂 It could be used well, I‘m sure, but it always feels like a cop out to me.

This is the first read for the Roald Dahl bookclub with my nephews. They are loving it and I love that the older one now is catching good dreams for his younger brother. Like all Roal Dahl's books I love the puns, but I can't help feeling that the BFG wasn't as big or as friendly with the other giants; as he explains giants are not as different from humans after all;we eat piggy-wig every day even though they never do any harm to human beans.

I don‘t believe I ever read this as a kid, though I loved Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. I read it for a reading challenge prompt for book with made up words in it. The BFG has a real way with words, made up or not. Am I right or left?

Wiz-poppers , dream-catching, The Queen of England and a Big Friendly Giant was a delightful way to spend a few hours this morning. An enchanting audio,as suggested by my fabulous friend & #bookseller @KarenUK for #PoP20 #MadeUpLanguage #ReadWithMrBook 🎧💜For all my friends who have little Littens, I suggest you listen to this audio with them. It‘ll bring giggles and snorts of laughter 😁❣️Hilarious sound effects and brilliant narration.

ju.ca.no I‘ve recently read it, it‘s such a lovely book😍😍 3y

Hello fellow Littens! I hope everyone is safe and managing to deal with this Corona Crisis 🤗 it looks as if the Museum I am working for will reduce costs by eliminating one of the highest expenses: me. It‘s not through yet but I am certain that I will soon be unemployed. This sucks but I‘m sure on the long run it‘s for the best. I hope your bosses are finding better ways to deal with the crisis!

Now to some light reading to cheer me up.

ju.ca.no @Cinfhen the way my boss handled the situation is unfortunately an absolute no return reason for me. We are such a small team, only four people including him and he wanted me to quit on the first day the museum had to close, even though there are other options. I loved the job and gave my everything but won‘t work there again, now that I know how little he cares. It will be hard to find a new job in the next time but I‘m sure it‘ll work out... 😞 3y

#madeuplanguage #pop2020
Well that audiobook was completely delightful. What a wonderful throwback to my childhood. My mum was a lovely ‘out-loud‘ reader, and actor/comedian/children‘s author David Walliams reminded me so much of the magical experience of being read to as a little ‘un. I love Dahl‘s icky, silly stories that sneak in some mirror to our humanity. I felt like my 6yr old self again. A story of dreams and friendship. 4hrs well spent💕

Cinfhen Beautiful review xx thanks for the recommendation 💓💓💓 3y

This book was a little disturbing with all the man eating giants and even the bfg was rather creepy. It's main redeeming factor was the the man doing the audio sounded a bit like Hagrid when he did the bfg's voice.

The BFG is a fantasy novel that has been one of my favorite books since my childhood. In this novel written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, an orphan named Sophie meets a Big Friendly Giant (BFG) and learns all about the life of giants And their crazy vocabulary. This book won Germany‘s only state-funded literacy award, the “Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis”.
#UCFLAE3414F19

Mwinship This book would be great for LC using The BFG educator‘s guide: roalddahl.com/docs/BFG_EducatorsGuide_1478879891.pdf
It aligns with ESOL strategy 10 about doing Think-Pair-Share in LC and UDL guideline 3.2 about establishing the relationships between characters in the novel during LC.

DrSpalding This is classic modern fantasy. You went straight to the author for the resource which is considered high-quality. 3y

Sophie was ‘abducted‘ by a friendly giant called The BFG and taken to the land of giants where there‘re other bloodthirsty giants who hunt and eat #human beans (beings). Sophie and the BFG formed a close friendship and embarked on a mission to stop the giants from eating people. A great story that touches on loneliness and relationship. Book and movie are good.
