This charming book by Roald Dahl is one of my favorites. The Big Friendly Giant is a fantastic character, I have read it several times and will probably read it more.
Roald Dahl has written a great deal of children's books, and the ones that I have read are all amazing. This particular one is very funny and overall quite delightful. If you're looking for something to read that's simple and easy, you've found it.
