Big Friendly Giant
The BFG Beginning: My book is about a Big Friendly Giant (BFG) who goes around
every night in different towns and blows dreams, that he captures, into little
boyís and girlís rooms. No one has ever seen the BFG, except one night when
he went to England where a young girl, named Sophie, lived. On that night she
couldnít get to sleep. It was about midnight, (in the story they call it the
witching hour,) and Sophie was curious and wanted to know what happened outside
so she peeped out her window. When she looked out her window, she saw the BFG
and the BFG saw her. He didnít want Sophie to go tell every one what she saw,
so he swooped her up and carried her off to where he lived, Giant Country.

Development: In Giant Country the BFG explained everything that happened and why
he had to take her with him. She was very curious about every thing that the BFG
did. He told her what he did and it wasnít very exciting, except for the part
that the BFG goes to a special place sometimes and that is where he collected
all his dreams to blow to boys and girls. He also said that sometimes to make a
dream more interesting he would mix different dreams together. Also if he got a
bad dream (nightmare) he would keep it in his jar and never let it free to haunt
a child. In Giant Country the BFG wasnít the only one. There were nine other
giants that were ten times taller than the BFG who was only 24 feet high. These
giants were man-eating giants, not dream blowing giants. Every night the nine
giants would gallop off to one place and gobble up people from their beds or off
the streets. Climax: Sophie, who was very scared of the giants, wanted to put an
end to what these harsh giants did. She asked the BFG to mix a dream about nine
mean giants and about a friendly giant and a little girl. She figured that if he
mixed a dream that was true and blew it to the Queen of England, then she would
be able to stop the giants. In the dream they mixed, they put that a little girl
would be sitting on her windowsill and she would bring the Queen to the BFG. The

BFG would bring the Queen and her army to Giant Country, and there they would
capture the nine harsh giants. Resolution: All that was just a dream and that
was what the Queen thought until she saw a little girl sitting on her
windowsill. Everything that happened in the dream did happen and the nine giants
were tied up with rope and carried away with nine helicopters. They were carried
to England where the Queen had 4,000 diggers dig a hole 500 feet deep and 400
feet across. The nine giants were dropped in the hole, for that was there new
home. Then the BFG was rewarded and so were Sophie and all of the men in the
army. From then on every one lived happily ever after! (Except for the nine
captured giants.)
