The BFG

With their fantastical characters and witty dialogue, Roald Dahl's books are ripe for adaptations that are crowd-pleasers for kids and their chaperones. The BFG, which stands for Big Friendly Giant, is not your typical monster. Not only does the BFG have a distinctly granola vibe, but he also befriends an orphaned girl, whom the not-so-friendly giants (NSFGs?) would probably like for a snack. Together the unlikely pair sets out to save kids from the BFG's more unsavory brethren. Best for ages 5 to 10.
