I love this story so much. This story also told me not to hate each other or you will not like anyone so you have to be very nice to one another and if you be nice you desirve a prize of friendship. I learned that you should not be selfish or else people will be selfish to you and you would not like it. This is a good story to show that you shouldnt be selfish bucause if you do you will not have friends and nobody will like you. The lesson is you shouldnt be selfish……]. I really liked the story: But it was really good anyways! The giant was realy gready. I liked the story because it had good word choice and it was interisting.
My favorite part was when the giant was kind. While I was reading the story I expierienced all kind of emotions. It was a great story. I really liked this story because the Giant was selfish,then he was nice and he let the children play in his garden.

When Sophie announces she is thirsty, the BFG treats her to a fizzy soda-pop drink called "frobscottle" which causes noisy flatulence because of the bubbles sinking downwards. The BFG calls this "Whizzpopping". The next morning, the BFG takes Sophie to Dream Country to catch more dreams, but is tormented by the man-eating giants along the way, notably by their leader the Fleshlumpeater, the largest and most fearsome of the giants. In Dream Country, the BFG demonstrates his dream-catching skills to Sophie; but the BFG mistakenly captures a nightmare and uses it to start a fight among the other giants when Fleshlumpeater has a nightmare about Jack.
Sophie later persuades him to approach the Queen of England about imprisoning the other giants. To this end, she uses her knowledge of London to navigate the BFG to Buckingham Palace , and the BFG creates a nightmare, introducing knowledge of the man-eating giants to the Queen, and leaves Sophie in the Queen's bedroom to confirm it. Because the dream included the knowledge of Sophie's presence, the Queen believes her and speaks with the BFG.
A fleet of helicopters then follows Sophie and the BFG to the giants' homeland, where the giants are tied up as they sleep. The only one not easily caught is the Fleshlumpeater who wakes up as the British attempt to tie him up, but Sophie and the BFG trick him into allowing his own capture by claiming that he has been poisoned by a venomous snake so that he will put his hands and feet together to be tied up. The man-eating giants are suspended under the helicopters and carried back to London where they are then imprisoned in a deep pit. After BFG has Fleshlumpeater untied and is hoisted out of the pit, the man-eating giants find themselves being only fed snozzcumbers.
Afterwards, a huge castle is built as the BFG's new house, with a little cottage next door for Sophie. While they are living happily in England, with several gifts coming in for many years from the governments of every country ever targeted by the giants notably England , Sweden , Arabia , India , Panama , Tibet , Jersey , Chile , and New Zealand , the BFG writes a book of their adventures identified as the novel itself--under the name "Roald Dahl".
