    1. This is a story about a big friendly giant, who snatches a little girl called Sophie from her bed and whisks her off to giant land. We find out that he isn’t as big or scary as Sophie first thinks; when we arrive in giant land and all the other giants are much larger and much more terrifying, gobbling up little boys and girls. We realise that the BFG actually only eats ‘snozzcumbers’ and not children at all. The friendship between the BFG and Sophie is heart-warming as they blow pleasant d [...]

    2. Roald Dahl is considered one of the great children's writers of the 20th century, and I can see why. His children's stories are highly original, and his use of language is unique.However, I have very mixed feelings about his work, and in most of his stories I find a streak of nastiness and a tendency to extreme caricature which I don't personally like. His many evil characters are without any positive features, which, while it may make for entertaining reading for children - and is consistent wi [...]

    3. Another classic Roald Dahl tale, this book is about an eight year old boy called George, who lives on a farm with his mother, father and grandmother. One day, his mother and father go out, leaving George and his grandmother at home together. George's mother reminds George to give his grandmother her medicine each day. George finds his grandmother grumpy and mean, and finds that she has a negative attitude towards him. After finding out a few dark secrets, George decides to give Grandma a taste o [...]

    4. As a child, I adored Roald Dahl's work. The BFG and Matilda may have even been two of my favourites; I love the fictional worlds Dahl creates within the pages.The BFG is about The Big Friendly Giant who is eager to befriend children and innocently kidnaps one. A funny book to enjoy as, or with, a kid. Matilda is about a young girl brought up in an unloving household but cared for by a doting teacher. Aside from her family life, Matilda discovers a unique power.George's Marvellous Medicine is abo [...]

    5. I borrowed this book from a friend because The BFG and George's Marvellous Medicine were those two Roald Dahl books that I didn't get a chance to read as a kid, so I wanted to catch up on that. I never realised until now, now that I am reading it as an adult, the dark undertones of Roald Dahl's stories. The BFG and George's Marvellous Medicine, especially the latter, had plenty of those. This collection also included Matilda which I enjoyed a whole lot as a kid, but now that I am forced to look [...]

    6. George's grandma has some pretty odd views. In fact, she's not a very nice person at all. She thinks caterpillars and slugs are delicious and likes to crunch on beetles best of all. George can do nothing right in Grandma's eyes, so when it's time for her medicine he decides to give her a dose of his own special brew. This book is great for children who have always dreamed to be mischievious towards their grandparents but never can, its funny to watch this boy acting horrid towards his grandma an [...]

    7. I love this book. He forgot the gin. I found that to clue to an underlying meaning about the book I don't know if Dahl purposely inferred. It is that everything is different without alcahol. It easpecially showed this with George's family. This is very true. It also showed the difference with alcahol is a negitive one. I was 110% terrified by George's grandmother.

    8. this book and funny and when I was reading this I said I don't know why he wants to give is grandma a new medicine that he came up with and she did all types of things like she flew up in the air then turn fat then she was hot she was burning up it was it was soo funny when she turned all the animials tall like she was I cant wait to read it again.

    9. These books are really good. They are all very funny, descriptive and hilarious to imagine. Some characters, like Matilda, have a really bad family to live with, or they aren't treated fairly, which is pretty miserable, but then it turns out to be great! I recommend that everyone at least reads Matilda, because it is my favorite out of these 3 books.

    10. I read this one so much it started to fall to bits lol, a definite childhood favourite. All three of these stories will capture your imagination whether young or old. Dahl has a clear talent for providing just enough to get your imaginative juices flowing

    11. best book ever!!!! this book has a lot of character to it and it is just an amazing book! you have never read the best book on earth till you read this one! this book is recommended! :) _emma lee palmer

    12. Fantastic book for kids! So imaginative and creative. Easy read that children will find delightful!Roald Dahl is always brilliant! His stories and rhymes are fun and entertaining! Some of my all time favorites!! Such a great way to entertain children and get them interested in reading!

    13. Another humdinger and whizbanger! I heart this author and was a total little kid at the Roald Dahl Museum in the UK this past summer.

    14. i think this book was great because it was really different form other books. what i learn form this book was that everyone should be belive in there self.

    15. Love these books still read them when I need a laugh or a reminder of years past!!! I will read them to my children!!!

    16. Just read the BFG after seeing the film. Good story, well-written but clearly not aimed at my age group! It contains several quite deep themes which hold an adult's interest.

    17. I cannot wait to read this to Victoria and be able to write a proper review. These were favourites of mine growing up!

    18. I love this book there are different story's in it like Matilda George's marvellous medicine and the bfg.

    19. These are three great books by Roald Dahl. They are all a great mix of humor, mystery, and realistic fiction. I hope you enjoyed this book as much as I did!
