The BFG is another great read by Roald Dahl, giving us a peek into his wild imagination and on the way teaching us a few distinct lessons about the human nature.

As always, Dahl finds an extremely imaginative and outlandish way to present positive moral messages. A creative twist on the classic good conquering evil.
