TJ I really liked it, Roald Dahl writes very fun children's stories.

Kandice I have read this book out loud to all of my children at least twice! It's a great book no matter how you enjoy it, but reading it aloud, with mandatory funny voices, is the BEST! I have literally made myself hoarse to entertain them. Almost all of his books are more entertaining out loud!

Michelle Wardhaugh I agree with the sentiment about reading it out loud. It is at least as much fun for the reader as it is for the listeners. Reading it in small groups is a blast, too, especially if you establish a sense of trust so that mistakes are opportunities for laughter as well.

Kandice Mistakes, given his crazy, made-up words, are a huge portion of the fun! His names for uhhum...bodily functions, are a staple in our household!

Alexandria this book is awsomeness!!!!!!!

Becky I read this book to my younger brother all the time. I really enjoyed this book when I was younger. I love how he has made up so many cool things and names. VERY CLEVER!

Alexandria i know, right?!

Becky i really enjoy this book

That's true!!! I LOVE this book; my family and I first listened to it on audio when we went camping, and we stayed up all night in the tent laughing our heads of over the part when the BFG was writing those dreams down on the jars and reading them to Sofie!

Becky love it!

LOL, yups don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon!

Kaleigh - Captain Bubbles ESTP(intj) I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's sad that he's dead now. :(

Dristi I love this book. Hehe it's just so fun to read!

Madeline agreed!

Stacy Love it! When I was in sixth grade our teacher read this out loud to us once she found out that most of us had never read a Roald Dahl book. I was hooked from the very first chapter. I've now passed my love for all things Dahl to my son and every summer we read all of his stories again.

Wrathofgaia :( Too bad he can't still write. I like his books! At least he wrote lots of books, though. The BFG was a GREAT one!

Aditi *the bookworm* Burman The BFG is an absolutely fantastic book!!!!!!!!!!!!.
And Rald Dahl is an absolutely a amazing author!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Starburst my teacher read it to me in the 2nd grade, and i still look back on the book fondly. This is one of Dahl's better efforts.

Janeen-san All of them are great books!!

IN the other discussion of BFG,Rosen wrote us that Steven Spielberg's apparently going to direct a BFG film! i was like *going out and getting the movie faster than anyone* then watches with a thought:Thanks Rosen* <3

Genta Hodo Loved it. Read it like when I was 12 or something, but it captured the way we, as children, used to look at grown-ups. Giants. Horrifying. Monsters. But then you grow up, and you begin to know a Big Friendly Giant, whom you can understand, sympathise and hopefully, love. It is you.
