Presenting a treat of GIANT proportions…
it’s The BFG film!

We don’t need to tell you how much we love Roald Dahl’s books, and The BFG is a particularly gloriumptious story.

The phizz-whizzingly wonderful film adaptation arrives in cinemas on Friday 22nd July – it’s the perfect way to celebrate the start of the Summer Reading Challenge!

Watch the film trailer below – it’s absolutely squiffling!
