Author: Roald Dahl So it goes that in Chapter Two of his outstanding 1975 tale Dannythe Champion of the World, Roald Dahl first breathed life into the notion of the BFG – the Big Friendly Giant, ‘three times as tall as ordinary men and his hands were as big as wheelbarrows.’ Seven years later, Roald Dahl saw fit to give this extraordinary character his own stage. Again in close collaboration with master-illustrator Quentin Blake, The BFG was born, a properly epic adventure underpinned with all of Roald Dahl’s wit and heart. When the young orphan Sophie finds herself seemingly kidnapped by a strange, cloaked giant, initial alarm finally gives way to the deepest of friendships and the discovery of wisdom and courage in the smallest of places. Held aloft by Roald Dahl’s ceaseless invention and power of wordplay, The BFG ranks as one of his greatest triumphs and for over three decades has been a treasured part of children’s lives the world over. Waterstones invites you to get ready for the adventure of a lifetime, it’s a winsquiffler we tell you! It’s a golden phizzwizard of a fantastic ride! Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favorite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings, these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy. Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian, and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG, and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world's number one storyteller. One of Britain’s finest living illustrators, Quentin Blake has put pictures to more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favorite illustrator. As an author, he has written and illustrated a number of bestselling children’s books including The Green Ship and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets. In 1999 he became the first-ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
