1. Do you agree with the BFG's belief that humans is
crazy for sleeping? Explain.
Possible Answer: I do not believe what he says. I believe
that humans need to have rest to keep their bodies healthy. My mom
and dad make me get at least nine hours of sleep every night.
Getting enough sleep helps me in many ways. First of all I'm a lot
nicer to be around when I get enough sleep. I also have more
energy and whatever I'm doing I do a better job of it. These are
reasons for me not agreeing with what the BFG says about humans.
2. In Chapter 14 the BFG explains some of the
dreams he has to Sophie. Which of the dreams do you like the best
Possible Answer: My favorite was the one about the kid who had
a pair of suction boots and was able to walk up the wall and across the

her and the BFG. Do you believe she is right? Why?
Possible Answer: I sure hope she's right. I'd like to
believe the Queen of England would be kind enough to do such a
thing. However, it seems like she might have more important things
to do. I think of our president and wonder if he would do
it. I hope he would as well. After all it is very important.
5. Do you believe "The Plan" will work?
Predict what will happen next.
Possible Answer: I think the Queen will wake up from her
nightmare and find Sophie sitting on the windowsill. I think she
will be frightened but listen to her because she was in the dream.
The Queen is powerful enough to make a change occur. I'm anxious
to find out if she really does believe a little girl.
