  • I think the songs in this book are really good and funny.I think this book is amazing because it is all really creepy then suddenly it all gets really strange and creepy.

    I liked the book. My mum has read it to me. Roald Dahl makes the BFG talk a bit differently which I found a bit funny. I like the part when the giants are captured by the army. There is a cartoon movie version of it, there are some scary scenes so younger children might not want to watch the movie.
