The BFG: [otherwise known as the big friendly giant] is about 30 feet tall. And as you might guess, he is very kind, generous and kind of smart.
The Queen: ruler of England helped catch the other mean giants
The Other Ugly Giants: the blood bottler and the others are mean nasty giants who eat people and are about 50 feet tall.
Sophie: an orphan girl who is very lonely. She wears thick glasses. And she is very smart and kind
Setting: England and giant country
Plot: Sophie was taken away from her bed by the big friendly giant. Scared out of her wits, she was quiet as a mouse. The big giant carried her to his cave. She thought he was going to eat her raw or boiled or fried. Soon, the BFG turned on the lights and Sophie was amazed because there were hundreds and thousands of bottles in every nook and cranny in the BFG’s cave. When the BFG heard her say ‘aren’t you going to eat me? he laughed, and when he laughed, the whole place shook.
Even though the BFG was nice, the other giants were terrible and ate children. The first time Sophie saw one of these up close, she was very scared. The bloodbottler, one of the evil giants, showed up at the BFG’s cave. This one was half-naked, and the only thing he had on was a pair of dirty, pink shorts. The BFG stood up to him while Sophie was still on the table. There was nothing on the table, and she wondered where she would hide. Then, Sophie saw the snozzcumber (kind of like a cucumber except 50 times bigger, about the size of a man), dug out huge seeds and made a hole for herself to hide in. The bloodbottler ate a big bite of the snozzcumber, and he barely missed eating Sophie.
Sophie asked the BFG what was in the bottles. “Dreams,” said the BFG. The BFG was in charge of giving children good dreams. He would travel the whole world blowing dreams into the children’s bedrooms. Sophie got to go with him to where he caught his dreams. He accidentally caught a dream that was worse than a nightmare. The BFG bottled it up, so no one could get to it.
Sophie wanted to stop the evil giants from eating all the world’s children. The BFG found out where they were going, and Sophie decided to stop them. She told the BFG to go to England and find the Queen’s bedroom. Sophie wanted the BFG to blow a dream about giants eating little children into the Queen’s bedroom. The plan worked, and the Queen decided to stop the evil giants.
The Queen ordered men to dig a huge pit, and then while the giants were sleeping, the Queen’s men tied them up and lifted them with helicopters and dropped them into the pit. The evil giants got snozzcumbers to the end of their lives.
Sophie and the BFG lived happily ever after in England.
