A heart-warming story about a tribe of child-eating monsters who roam the world looking for their dinner - and the outcast among them who teams with an orphan girl to beat them at their own game.

When Sophie is snatched from her bed by a Giant, she fears that he’s going to eat her. But the Giant has no intention of harming her - after all, he is THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT!

The BFG takes her to his cave in Giant Land, where he hides from the other nasty giants. While they're squiffsquiddling off to Turkey ("to have turkey dinner!") he stays behind, cataloging his dreams, the dreams he blows into the ears of sleeping children in hopes of giving them very good sleep.

But when Sophie finds out that the Giants are headed back to England to wreak havoc on English children, she convinces the BFG to help her foil the plot, and no one other than the Queen of England will have to be part of the plan!

Adapted from Roald Dahl’s modern classic book, this is great fun for students grades K-5, and perfect for libraries and civic centers. Available in a brand new production starting spring, 2019!
