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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The BFG?

The BFG's phrasing is hillarious.

What does David Walliams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

David Walliams voices for each character is spot on. Love the BFG's accent and Walliams impression of the the Queen.

Any additional comments?

Will listen over and over.

In the middle of the Enchanted Wood you can hear the trees whispering "Wisha-Wisha" and amongst the thick forest is the most enchanted tree in the world - the magic Faraway Tree. Here, fairy folk live on every branch. Meet Moon-Face, Silky the Fairy, and Saucepan Man, and visit the different lands at the top of the Faraway Tree - including the Land of Spells, the crazy Land of Topsy-Turvy, and the Land of Do-As-You-Please where the children ride in a runaway train! Enid Blyton has created a magical journey for children with The Magic Faraway Tree.
