"Human beans is not really believing in giants, is they? Human beans is not thinking we exist."
One dark, silvery moonlit night, Sophie is snatched from her bed by a giant!
Luckily it is the Big Friendly Giant (the BFG), who is no ordinary bone-crunching giant, but instead prefers snozzcumbers and frobscottle to children.
But there are other giants in Giant Country. And those giants have a plan to gallop far and wide to find some tasty human beans to eat.
Can Sophie and the BFG stop them?
