About the Author
After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.
Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

However, the copy of the book I received new gets one start because it IS MISSING THE MIDDLE 32 pages!!! I just got to page 95 reading out loud to my 6-year old, and the next page in the paper-back is 193! The book proceeds 193 to the end including the ads for other Roald Dahl books, then goes page 129 through to the end again, including a repeat of the 193 onward section. Pages 96 through 128 are missing entirely. This kind of misprint happens sometimes, but it is such a bummer in the middle of the story! I wish Amazon could send me the kindle version so I can get back to our favorite bed-time story tonight, and eventually a replacement paperback so we can have a complete copy for our younger child when he is old enough for it!

My 5 year old daughter saw a one-man performance/reading of this at school and wanted the book, so I ordered it and, to my very pleasant surprise, discovered it was a good and enjoyable bedtime read. Once you've got your tongue round the way the BFG speaks that is!!
5 year olds are very literal though, so be prepared for some difficult questions on what happened to the nasty giants (not to mention the children they ate) and Dahl's bizarre understanding of size - how does a 24' giant have hands bigger than an 8 year old girl, for instance, not to mention ears so vast she can hide in one minor fold of them!
She has seen the BFG film so I knew she liked the story. The audio book is brilliant, we listen to it together in the car and then another four times in the week she stayed.
Brilliantly read by David Walliams, he was the perfect choice to read the book. My daughter now picks fault with the film saying bits are missing !
I highly recommend this audio book to all BFG lovers !
