#3rdfor3rd: The BFG

Welcome to #3rdfor3rd where I share books that my third graders recommend for other third graders. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.) Read more about this book recommendation series and format here.


Book recommendation by Lily.

This book is called The BFG and it is by Roald Dahl.

Imagine yourself being taken away by a giant to be stuffed in a pan with sizzling hot oil and spices and eaten by it. This is what scares Sophie as she is snatched from her bed by a giant hand connected to a giant person. Luckily, the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is not as scary as he seems (hence his name). But his "friends", the other giants, are. Every one of them (except the BFG) would run off at six pm. every night to gobble up a bunch of humans (or human beans, as they call them). Sophie and the BFG come up with a plan to stop the BUGs (Big Unfriendly Giants), which involves the Queen of England, the Head of the Air Force, some ropes, and some snozzcumbers.

My favorite quotable quote from this book is, "I is a very mixed up giant. But I is trying my best." said the BFG.

If you like giants, orphans, adventure, and caveman speech, you will love this book.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! I don't rate many books this much!
