If you want laughter, entertainment and excitment, then read the BFG, by the fabulous Roald Dahl. When you start reading it, you can't put it down. You never know what will happen!
My favourite characters are Sophie, who is taken in the middle of the night, by my other favourite character, The BFG.
Sophie is taken to Giant Country...in the middle of the night! Sophie and The BFG then battle to save England....from Her Magesty The Queen..to old grandmas! But can they?? I won't tell you anymore, it spoils it!
The language Roald Dahl uses is fantastic, especially "Gobblefunk." The text is very funny, especially when Sophie corrects The BFG.
I would recommend this book to magic-lovers.
