Opinion

From Library Staff

Sophie discovers that giants not only exist, but that there are a great many of them who like to guzzle and swallomp nice little chiddlers. But not the Big Friendly Giant. He and Sophie cook up an ingenious plot to save the children of the world. This one might be a little too scary for some kids.

Roald Dahl is a magical author, and one who speaks so deeply to the child in each of us. Re-reading this as an adult, when I read it aloud to my children, was a very different experience; as adults, I think we see the harshness in what Dahl writes. But to a child, Dahl speaks so deeply to the deep questions we have of the world -- and perhaps in no better way than in this book -- that our family is made of the people who love us best, no matter who they are; that we must not judge on appearances; that friends can come in the most unlikely places; that good can overcome evil; that we can be small and mighty. This book is a treasure.
