In the much beloved tradition of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), we join two misfits on an unforgettable odyssey. For a young orphan "human bean", the sight of a giant outside her window is terrifying, and she fears for her life when he whisks her away to an enchanted land. This Big Friendly Giant is not like other giants, however. The job of this larger-than-life vegetarian is to blow magical dreams into children's bedrooms, and together they embark on a quest to save England from the "gizzard-gulping" giants who don't have the BFG's tender heart. The cheeky BFG ultimately shows that heroes can come in all sizes. See the play that inspired the new Steven Spielberg movie coming out July 2016.

I just started this book, so I will only give you what i have read so far. In the beginning he did not like Christmas because he didn't get many present, but his brother Manny received lots of presents. Next his mom was going through old stuff in the garage and she found a stuffed bear, and he was Santa's scout. He was getting crept out about it because he felt the bear was watching his every move. He decided he would be extra good so he can get more presents. Greg didn't like the fact that Santa knew when he was sleeping and when he was awake. Greg got into an argument with his friend Rowley after coming home from church, because Greg said piece be with you and Rowley thought he said peas be with you. This is where I have stopped this really interesting, I will have more to come.
