The Big Friendly Giant is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by any of the other giants she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flushbunking off to England to swollop a few nice little chiddlers, she and the BFG decide they must stop them once and for all!
