Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller
WIGGLE YOUR EARS! This new edition includes MAKE-YOUR-OWN GIANT EARS for dress-up!
On a dark, silvery moonlit night, Sophie is snatched from her bed by a giant.

But there are other giants in Giant Country.
Fifty foot brutes who gallop far and wide every night to find human beans to eat.
Can Sophie and her friend the BFG stop them? Let's hope so - otherwise the next child a gruesome giant guzzles could be YOU.
