A little girl named Sophie is plucked from her orphanage one night by a 24-foot-tall giant with enormous ears and a rather colorful way of speaking.  Luckily, he’s a BFG (Big Friendly Giant) and they form an unlikely friendship.  Sophie is horrified to learn there are nine giants twice the size of the BFG who gallop off nightly to gobble up children around the world.  Together, she and the BFG (with a little help from the Queen of England) come up with a plan to stop them once and for all.
