Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books
There''s abundant humor and action here, and the concept should entertain readers, but Dahl abuses one aspect of the comedy so that it becomes tedious: the speech of the BFG. '' . . . some poor little tottler will be having the most curdbloodling time! This one is a real kicksy bog thumper! I is explodingit as soon as I get home!'' Or, ''I is so upset by this trogglehumping bogthumping grobswitcher that I is not willing to go on.'' It''s fun for a time, but the device palls.

The Times
Roald Dahl is a marvellously inventive and unrestrained writer who appeals to the child''s gut-punching and slapstick sense of humour. . . . The BFG is the funniest and the most appealing book he has written for a long time. . . .The language is simple and racy, the sentences and chapters . . . are short and the story moves at a tremendous pace. The nonsensical wordplay and deliciously witty use of language will undoubtedly appeal to the child''s crude sense of fun and delight in jokey phrases. {The BFG} is endearingly original, with an unusual turn of phrase, developed in his giant country as a result of having no mother and no one to teach him how to speak properly. He has even taught himself to write by borrowing a book some eighty years previously, ''a scrumdiddliumptious story, Nicholas Nickleby by Dahl''s Chickens This is altogether an extremely funny and readable story. Once again, Quentin Blake''s cartoon illustrations add to the flavour of the book.
