Author Roald Dahl really knew a man with large ears who inspired the BFG, and we meet him! Shows how exaggerating people's tiny peculiarities makes them larger, uglier, better and more interesting than in life, how extreme characters create vivid impressions, and how metaphors and similes bring liveliness to reading and writing by using comparisons. Part of the Creative Reading & Writing with Roald Dahl Series.
