Class Novel

We are reading The BFG by Roald Dahl. The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a 24-foot-tall individual who has super hearing abilities and immense speed. In addition, his primary occupation is the collection and distribution of good dreams to children. We are enjoying this book immensely and read it as often as we can.
