Movies for Readers: The BFG

First Edition of The BFG
This "Movie for Readers" will, I suspect, make a whole lot of money when it is released on July 1, 2016.  The BFG, as in "The Big Friendly Giant," is based on the popular 1982 children's book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.  My own girls were just a little too old to enjoy the book as children, but now as teachers of young children, both of them are looking forward to the film.  Although an animated adaptation was shown on television in 1989, this is the first major film production of The BFG.
