Sophie is a lonely little girl until the 10-year-old meets the BFG, short for Big Friendly Giant. Though he looks rather startling, he is an extremely gentle soul who is smaller than his fellow giants. His chief distinguishing characteristic is his refusal to eat children, which are a popular delicacy among his brethren. The giant, who spends his nights filling children's heads with fantastical and beautiful dreams, whisks Sophie off on a marvelous and dangerous adventure. With her help, he hopes to convince the Queen of England to outlaw the vicious kid-eating giants from the country once and for all.
