The BFG By Roald Dahl

My book review is on THE BFG by Roald Dahl. The book is about a girl named Sophie who meets a giant named the BFG. Sophie is an orphan so she is used to being polite and helpful.  One night the BFG kidnaps Sophie because Sophie sees him. The BFG takes Sophie to giant vill. Giant vill is a place that has a yellow ground and no trees. And then Sophie realizes what giants do for their living…

…They eat children up at night…

So of course Sophie wants to make sure that the other mean giants don’t find out about her.

While the BFG isn’t saving other kids, and since he doesn’t eat  other kids, he catches dreams and he gives the good dreams to kids all over the world. Sophie does not want to stay in the place where there are giants because if they find out about her she will be eaten. “Why can’t I just go back to my old orphanage,” Said Sophie. “You can’t go back there because if you do you will tell everyone and then people will try to find us giants,” Said the BFG.

I liked this book because Sophie isn’t the type of girl that gives up quickly and she is very nice. I would recommend this book to people who like adventure and nonsense words like a snozzcumber or a wrilndgritting type of dream. I would rate this book 5 stars .

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is about a really (you’ll see how really poor they are soon) poor family. Now what family am I talking about? The Bucket’s. Charlie Bucket lives in a small cottage with his grandparents, Grandpa Joe, Grandma Josephine, Grandpa George, and Grandma Georgina. He has a mother named Mrs. Bucket, and a father named Mr. Bucket. Charlie gets 1 chocolate bar a year. One night, Grandpa Joe tells Charlie a story about Mr. Wonka and his chocolate factory. Then, a miracle happens. Read the book to find out what the miracle is! My favorite part of the book was when Grandpa Joe told Charlie the stories because it’s like he is telling you that story, which is cool.

I would recommend the book to ages 4-? I did the question mark because some people like the book until they’re 50, and some like the book until they’re 20. One reason I like the book is because it is heavily illustrated by a good illustrator, Quentin Blake.

I would rate the book 57 stars because it was real good.




The BFG, by Roald Dahl

      The BFG is about a giant. The 12 foot tall BFG (The Big Friendly Giant) catches Sophie (a little girl in a horrible orphanage) watching him blow dreams into childrens’s houses in England with his huge “trombone” thing. Since the BFG didn’t want his species (giants) to be killed, he takes Sophie to Giant Country, and hides her from these 9 man eating giants in his cave/house. Sophie tries to convince the BFG to help her mix-up dreams to make it so that people will help stop the 9 man eating giants stop eating humans, but also making it so The BFG doesn’t die at the same time!

      I really enjoyed The BFG. I would recommend the book to kids 8-19 years old because of the text. For example, the BFG says stuff in not the right way or order. Like instead of human beings, he says human beans, and kids younger than 8, would not understand it. I would rate the book more than 5 stars if I could, but I can’t. I’ll just rate it 5 stars.


Fantastic Mr.Fox By Roald Dahl

There lives a fox in a hole underground. His name is Fantastic Mr. Fox. Fantastic Mr.Fox has a wife, she is called Mrs. Fox and she also has three children that are also foxes.

Every night Fantastic Mr.Fox takes a chicken, duck or turkey from one of the farmers. Then one day the three farmers named Bunce, Boggis and Bean get really angry that the Foxes are stealing their food. So one day they decide to dig the foxes out. In the middle of the night Mr.Fox heard the tractors so he woke everyone up and they all started to dig a hole into the ground very, very deep…

If you read this book you can find out more. I would recommend this book because it is a very adventurous and exciting book. I would give this a five star rating out of five stars.
