Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The BFG, read by actor, writer, and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios.
The BFG is a nice and jumbly giant. In fact, he is the only big friendly giant in Giant Country. All the other giants are big bonecrunching brutes, and now the BFG and his friend Sophie must stop them guzzling up little human beans - with some help from Her Majester, the Queen.
David Walliams is a multi-award winning British comedian, actor, and writer, best known for the comedy series Little Britain; but his acting work includes plays, dramas, and films. He is also the author of five hugely successful children's books, including two illustrated by Quentin Blake - Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator.

I'm a late comer to Roald Dahl and the BFG! Inspired by the movie(which we haven't seen yet) downloaded this for holiday driving entertainment. It was super entertaining. Great story with some funny words and phrases by the BFG. Really good naration by David Walliams!!! Enjoyed by all 3 generations on our trip.
The BFG's phrasing is hillarious.
David Walliams voices for each character is spot on. Love the BFG's accent and Walliams impression of the the Queen.
Will listen over and over.
…..… and splendidly narrated by Walliams, giving wonderful life to this creation of the incomparable Roald Dahl.
As a grandfather of 77, I am busting to introduce my seven year-old grandson to this Audible gem.
"Great story for experienced readers"
Never listened/read a children's book before so was not used to the format of writing.
"Never read this as a child"
A marvelous little book that I didn't have a chance to read as a child, but enjoyed nonetheless as an adult.

I am 8 and I love all the Roald Dahl books!
It was really well read and I listened to it in 3 days. I had to keep asking my mummy for her I pad to listen to the rest.
This is the best book I ever read!!
It was really well written and read. Wow can books get any better.
"Best book ever in the world"
I have 15 books and It is the best of all of my books even the new one. We all love it it's epic we all like it. It's really good for long periods of time. If you mark its 100 out of 100
Loved this book as a child and it is still brilliant. Well read and even the sound effects helped with the flow of the story. Worth a listen.
"Classic story told very well"
David Walliams delivers a very good performance of this classic Dahl story. I would encourage parents to buy this and play it to their children if they are unable to read the book themselves to their children.
This is the story of a young girl who is befriended by the Big Friendly Giant (The BFG). They go on an adventure together which includes the Queen of England no less. They team up with the British army and Royal Air Force to travel back to the land of the giants and bring back the rest of the giants, who are big but definitely not friendly!
Together they bring back to England all the bad giants and put them in a hole do the 'human beans' can see them as they eat only the horrible Snozcumber.
In the end the BFG is made the official Royal Dream Blower, responsible for blowing good dreams in through the bedroom windows of children. As well as capturing the bad dreams so children don't get scared.
I enjoyed reading this book when I was a child and I enjoy listening to it even now as a 38year old.
