I loved this movie! but I found the book more interesting than the movie. Don't mistake me, I loved this movie, it was great, but the book was cooler!

Hello
today I giong to tell you about a film named BFG. The film based on the book by Roald Dahl. BFG stand for Big Friendly Giant.The director of the film is the popular Steven Spielberg.
It acted about a young little girl. Her name is Sophie and one night she meet a Giant.
Sophie thinks that the BFG is going to eat her like a cannibal. But the BFG don´t want to eat her, he want to be her friend. Because all other giants are not so good like the BFG. Sophie and BFG became good friends and have a lot of adventures together. I read this text because i have do to a English Portfolio for school.

Do you like more the film or the book ?
Please give me a Feedback.

Have a nice day,
Ella :)

I borrowed this book from the library after I'd watched the film. This book is great, either the film. But does anyone see that there's a mistake in the transcrip that " You have a delicious little BEING" must be "You have a delicious little BEAN"?
(I'm a Vietnamese, hello!)
In Vietnam, they translate the title of the book from "The BFG" into "Sophie and the giant"(in Vietnamese)
