Description: "Just imagine suddenly knowing you may be eaten fo breakfast in the very near future; dropped like a rasher of bacon into a frying pan sizzling with fat. This is exactly what worries Sophie when she is snatched from here bed in the middle of the night by a giant with a stride as long as a tennis court. Luckily for Sophie, the BFG is far more jumbly than his disgusting neighbours, whose favourite pastime is guzzling and swallomping nice little childers. Sophie is determined to stop all this and so she and the BFG cook up an ingenious plan to rid the world of trogglehumping, bogthumping giants for ever!"
Pictorial covers are lightly creased near the upper-right corner (refer to image). Unused, attractive green monochrome Puffin Book Club ex-libris has been affixed to the verso. All pages have the usual tanning commensurate with a 30-year-old paperback, but remain free from foxing or any other marking. Binding is very tight.
A highly collectible copy of the first Puffin edition.
