In this fun and imaginative story, the orphan Sophie is snatched from her bed by a quirky but harmless Big Friendly Giant who uses a trumpet to blow dreams into children’s ears. As they become friends and join forces against a few other mischievous giants, Sophie discovers “frobscottle,” “wizzpopping” and all sorts of fantastical things that fill their adventure with mixedup language, laughs and magical entertainment.
