Matilda Wormwood is only five years old, but she is a genius. Unfortunately, her parents are too stupid to even notice. Worse, her horrible headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is a bully who makes life difficult—especially for Matilda's teacher, Miss Honey, and her friends. However, what Miss Trunchbull doesn't know is that Matilda is an incredibly clever child and has a trick or two up her sleeve...
Nobody has seen Willy Wonka—or the inside of his amazing chocolate factory—in years. When Wonka announces his plans to invite the winners of five Golden Tickets to visit his factory, the whole world is after those tickets! Little Charlie Bucket longs to find a Golden Ticket and get the chance to visit the mysterious factory and well, he has just as much chance as anyone else, doesn’t he?
James Henry Trotter lives with his two horrid aunts, Spiker and Sponge, who never let him have fun or play with other children. He hasn't got a single friend in the whole wide world. That is, not until he meets the Old Green Grasshopper and the rest of the insects aboard a giant, magical peach!
The Big Friendly Giant, BFG, is unlike other giants. For a start, he’d rather eat repulsant snozzcumbers than chomp on innocent children—lucky for little Sophie, he is far too nice and jumbly. It's not long before the BFG becomes Sophie's very best friend, and the pair are hatching a clever plan to deal with the cruel and nasty giants—with a very exceptional ally.

We've loved Roald Dahl so far in the form of The Enormous Crocodile and Fantastic Mr Fox, but this was a shocker. I don't think it's OK to say that it depends on what your child will take away from it either. It's stark and children are shaped by everything they see and hear.
I love it! The kids thought it was hilarious because it was about a man being in love (cue the 30 voices shouting "yuk!") but they also thought it was super happy at the end. Such a lovely, harmless little story and it was short enough that we could read it in only 3 sittings (with my 6-7 year olds, so we can't sit on the carpet for too long!). Would definitely recommend!
Really good story line, fun and enjoyable
Excellent value for money
And the quality was perfect as expected
