Drawn by the perfect stillness of the dead of night, little Sophie breaks the rules of the miserable orphanage where she resides, rises from her bed, and peers out the window. What she sees will change her life forever, a hulking shadow drawing nearer and nearer until she can clearly see a giant in a cape with tremendous ears. And he sees her!
Once again Dahl has brought a terrifying world to life, the most vicious danger imaginable to a tiny child – a land of man-eating giants, each more ferocious than the last, mercilously gobbling up humans left and right. And somehow little Sophie, with the help of the one-and-only Big Friendly Giant, must stop them all before they can attack again. Beautifully done, this story.
