Publisher's Summary

Roald Dahl's The BFG is a joy to listen to, bringing a new dimension to the classic children's story. Featuring one of the author's most beloved characters, it's a heart-warming tale about an orphaned girl named Sophie and her burgeoning friendship with a kind-hearted giant. Unrivalled in imagination and sheer delight, this wildly entertaining and adventurous story is loved by people of all ages.

Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The BFG, read by actor, writer, and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios.

The BFG is a nice and jumbly giant. In fact, he is the only big friendly giant in Giant Country. All the other giants are big bonecrunching brutes, and now the BFG and his friend Sophie must stop them guzzling up little human beans - with some help from Her Majester, the Queen.

David Walliams is a multi-award winning British comedian, actor, and writer, best known for the comedy series Little Britain; but his acting work includes plays, dramas, and films. He is also the author of five hugely successful children's books, including two illustrated by Quentin Blake - Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator.

    "Great book"

    One of the best narrated books, fantastic children's classic brought to life. Length of the book also makes it great value.

    Would you listen to The BFG again? Why?

    I would listen to this again and again.


    What does David Walliams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    David Walliams brings the story and characters to life.

    "Classic story told very well"

    David Walliams delivers a very good performance of this classic Dahl story. I would encourage parents to buy this and play it to their children if they are unable to read the book themselves to their children.

    This is the story of a young girl who is befriended by the Big Friendly Giant (The BFG). They go on an adventure together which includes the Queen of England no less. They team up with the British army and Royal Air Force to travel back to the land of the giants and bring back the rest of the giants, who are big but definitely not friendly!

    Together they bring back to England all the bad giants and put them in a hole do the 'human beans' can see them as they eat only the horrible Snozcumber.

    In the end the BFG is made the official Royal Dream Blower, responsible for blowing good dreams in through the bedroom windows of children. As well as capturing the bad dreams so children don't get scared.

    I enjoyed reading this book when I was a child and I enjoy listening to it even now as a 38year old.
