The BFG (short for “Big Friendly Giant”) is a 1982 children’s book written by British novelist Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.

As of 2009, the novel has sold 37 million copies in UK editions alone.
An animated television adaptation was released in 1989 with David Jason providing the voice of the BFG and Amanda Root as the voice of Sophie. It has also been adapted as a theatre performance. A theatrical live-action adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg was released in 2016.
