There was something coming up the street on the opposite side.
It was something black...
Something tall and black...
Something very tall and very black and very thin.
On a dark, silvery moonlit night, Sophie is snatched from her bed by a giant.
Luckily, it is the Big Friendly Giant, the BFG, who only eats snozzcumbers and glugs frobscottle.
But there are other giants in Giant Country.
Fifty foot brutes who gallop far and wide every night to find human beans to eat.
Can Sophie and her friend the BFG stop them? Let's hope so - otherwise the next child a gruesome giant guzzles could be YOU.
**The BFG is now a major motion picture from director Steven Spielberg, and starring Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance.**
Now you can listen to THE BFG and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!
Also look out for new Roald Dahl apps - including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.
Including tales by Roald Dahl and Lewis Carroll, experience these classic stories and best-loved books in a lively new way, through the most entertaining of audio retellings.
Roald Dahl's 'extraordinary girl with a magical mind' was a rebel ahead of her time, and her spirit lives on in the women shaping the world today.
