    "I bought The BFG for my daughter who is five. This book was pretty good. There were some language barriers since the dialogue was in Great Britain English, which made some of the contents hard to follow. "

    "I just bought The BFG for my 7-year-old son and to me, it's one of the best chapter books that I have read to him aloud. Usually, I'm a bit bored reading some of his books but I really enjoyed this book. He loves the book so much and now says Whizzpopper all the time. There were numerous places in the book where he laughed out loud. "

    "This is an amazing book that is fun for all ages. It helps children deal with their fears without talking down to them. The tale is full of imagination and whimsy that will keep youngsters entertained. It is definitely a must read before you see the movie. Both of my daughters have greatly enjoyed this book. "

    "A great book for all kids to enjoy. All of Roald Dahls' books are so imaginative and very well written. I am glad I read the book before seeing the movie because it goes into a lot more detail. There are many of his books to choose from and most are wonderful and fine for every age. "
