Sleigh Tour The Magic of Christmas: (Review) The BFG by Roald Dahl

Today, I'm excited to join the the Sleigh Tour Bloggers this week as we share one of their favorite Children's Winter/Christmas stories. To see who else is on the tour you can visit the WinterHaven Sleigh Tour event.

My Children’s story choice for today is The BFG by Roald Dahl
My Thoughts:
This book is the one that I remember sparking my reading interest when I was younger.  I remember sitting in a circle with my classmates and listening to my teacher read and oh my I was hooked.  Roald Dahl is a master genius which I am sure most of you know and The BFG is my favorite of his works.

This story centers around a young girl and her Big Friendly Giant (BFG).  See the BFG is the only friendly giant around, the rest snatch little boys and girls from their bed and well eat them.  *eww*  SO together they devise a plan to stop these mean giants and make it safe for all the children.  See even at an early age I was chomping at the bit for dark and twisted creatures ha! 

Seriously though this story has everything a kid could want action, friendship, hope, and love.  I was enthralled with the way Dahl writes and even to this day I still love his stories.

  1. Oh this is an awesome choice Crystal. I used to love reading books by Roahl Dahl when I was younger too, The Twits and George's Marvellous Medicine were my favourites, I don't think I ever read The BFG! I think maybe I should give it a go! :)

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
