Transcript of The BFG

The BFG Written by Roald Dahl Prezi created by: Areeb Khan Charlie Hwang and Raymond Yee Period 1 SO Where and when did The BFG take place? The story TAKES PLACE in 1982 in the Buckingham Palace and Giant Country Sophie and the BFG travel to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen of England and try to convince her to take action against the other horrible giants The majority of the story, however, takes place in Giant Country: a barren, desert-like place that the 10 Giants call home. It is here that the Giants TAKE NAPS in between visiting countries to eat humans The mood of the story is playful and exciting with Roald Dahl making up fun words that enhance the story NOW What is the tone that the Roald Dahl uses in The BFG? Time to meet the characters! She's a young orphan with few friends and HUGE glasses Sophie Dahl Although she's very short, Sophie has LARGER-THAN-LIFE ambitions Sophie always LOOKS AT THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THINGS and is determined to finish what she starts She's also patient with the BFG and tries her hardest to get him to stand up against the other bullying Giants The BFG a.k.a. The Big Friendly Giant The BFG is the only kind Giant and doesn't eat humans every night During the day, the BFG travels to Dream Country to catch dreams During the night, he goes around towns blowing the dreams into children's rooms Standing at a measly 24 feet high, the BFG is often SUBJECTED TO harassment from the other Giants The story IN A NUTSHELL: Sophie is kept up late at night by the glare of the moon and is snatched by the BFG, who takes her to Giant Country Sophie learns more about the BFG and his job as a Dream-Blower The BFG is tossed around and bullied by the other Giants Sophie and the BFG travel back to England, where they cause the Queen to dream of the giants and the horrible deeds they've committed The queen wakes up and Sophie explains the dream. In response, the Queen sends the Army and Air Force to CARRY OUT an operation to capture the Giants IN THE END, the Giants are retrieved and kept in a deep pit while Sophie and the BFG become heroes Some lessons to be learned: Just becaue you can't see something, doesn't mean it doesn't exist And, don't let others harass you for who you are; stand up for what you believe Now let's learn about the fantastic author of the book, Roald Dahl Roald Dahl MADE HIS MARK ON HISTORY by writing several well-known stories He was born in 1916 and
died in 1990 Throughout his lifetime, Roald Dahl had written numerous books that are still popular today 12/13/10 The BFG is ALL THUMBS at English and often mixes up tricky words Some of his best known children's stories are: Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and The Twits Gobblefunk! Roald Dahl is famous for his made-up language, Gobblefunk, which he uses in several of his books. Some words he uses often are: "'Music is very good for the digestion,' the Queen said." "...'Do play something.' 'I has Her Majester's permission!' cried the BFG, and all at once he let fly with a whizzpopper that sounded as though a bomb had exploded in the room." "...'Whoopee!' shouted the BFG. 'That is better than bagglepipes, is it not, Majester?'" "...'I prefer bagpipes,' she said. But she couldn't stop herself from smiling (Dahl 171)." Blabbersnitch: A creature that lives at the bottom of the sea Crodscollop: A mouth-watering flavor Svollop: To destroy something Buggles: Completely Crazy!

'Oh no! Oh gosh! Oh help!' She spat it out quickly. 'It tastes of frogskins!' she gasped. 'And rotten fish!' 'Worse than that!' cried the BFG, roaring with laughter. 'To me it is tasting of clockcoaches and slimewanglers (Dahl 51).'"
