The BFG, written by Roald Dahl, is the story of a young orphaned girl named Sophie, living in a girl's orphanage One night, Sophie sees a large, cloaked person blowing something via a trumpet-like object into a bedroom window down the street. She is discovered by the mysterious person, who carries her to his homeland of Giant Country. There, he identifies himself as the Big Friendly Giant ('BFG'). This book is absolutely hilarious. The book murders the English language and delivers a very happy story. I was introduced to this story when my fourth grade son came home raving about a book his teacher had read to the class. From then on, I used it as a novel unit with my fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.
