One of our favourite books is about to become a film, can you guess which one?

The classic Roald Dahl story ‘The BFG’ has been adapted into a film and is coming to life thanks to Disney, Melissa Mathison and Steven Speilberg.


Rylance aka the BFG is a warm, friendly soul unlike his counterparts. He likes nothing more than catching a dream or two and giving them to children in their sleep. However his fellow giants Bloodbottler and Fleshlumpeater would rather turn the children into dinner, which isn’t… Ideal. On his travels the BFG meets Sophie a strong-willed, intelligent child. And the two of them make plans with the Queen to defeat the unfriendly giants.
