''Human beans is not really believing in giants, is they? Human beans is not thinking we exist.'
Every night, when the world is sleeping, big gruesome giants guzzle up whoppsy-whiffling human beans. And there's only one giant who can stop them - the BFG. He's the kindest giant there is and, with his friend Sophie in his top pocket, he sets out to rid the world of the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater and all their rotsome friends forever . . .
'You stay where you is in my pocket, huggybee,' he said. 'We is doing this lovely bit of buckswashling both together.'
The well-loved story of a big friendly giant celebrates its 30th anniversary with a great new cover by Quentin Blake.
