What is a BFG? Why a Big, Friendly Giant, of course! Sophie is awake at night when she spies a tall, giant person in a black cloak walking through her London Street and blowing something that looks like a trumpet into the neighbor’s window. All of the sudden, she is snatched by the BFG and taken into Giant country. Follow Sophie’s adventures as she befriends the BFG, meets the Queen of England and matches wits with the other Big, not-so-friendly Giants! (Melissa Bowman, Melissa.Bowman@pisd.edu, Armstrong Middle School)
