How she met the Big Friendly Giant. She first saw him in the night and was carried away to his enormous house. Had she been taken away by another giant – her life would have ended very soon. Because the other giants very like to eat people and especially children.
One day Sophie knew that group of evil giants wants to eat the little children again and decided to stop them. The Big Friendly Giant, her best friend would help it that deadly mission.
