Summary
"When little Sophie is taken from her orphanage bed one night, it's just the beginning of a thrilling adventure with the Big Friendly Giant. As they catch dreams together in Dream Country and blow them into children's bedrooms, trouble appears in the shape of The Bloodbottler and Fleshlumpeater - big, bad giants who like to gobble children for breakfast! It's up to Sophie and The BFG to persuade the Queen of England to help them stop the giants and thwart their fiendish plans"--Container
