The BFG - Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

5th Grade


The BFG (big friendly giant) spends his time blowing happy dreams to children. Soon he finds a companion in a young orphan named Sophie. Together they save the world from nine other man-gobbling giants. This book has made up words and bad grammar which might confuse some students. I would still love to use this book in my classroom to talk about finding friends in unexpected places. First I would make sure my students knew this book used improper grammar and had made up words. I could find an activity for students about the made up words.
