What's the story?
Awakened at the midnight hour at her orphanage, Sophie is alarmed to see a huge giant catching dreams from the other children. After her initial fear, she joins the Big Friendly Giant on a quest to prevent his fierce, much larger brethren from eating "human beans" (that would be us). Along the way, Sophie and the BFG meet the Queen, the frightening giants, and taste weird foods (anybody for snozzcumbers and frobscottle?), and discovers the reason for his collecting dreams.
