The man who captured and kept
in bottles - ideas from the brain
- pieces of knowledge
- jokes (BFG)
I saw them thrashing around furiously
in their jars.
But when do you get
your patients [?]
- People like you –
- oh dear.
I was let out again in the end, but
as you can see he took most of

The child who made the wish. “
I watched him putting a spoonful of cocoa into
each mug, Then Three sugar-lumps into mine and Two into
his. The Kettle was not boiling yet.
“So”, he said, “from the dreams and the
wishes of children, The Big Friendly Giant makes his
secret magic powders. And when the powders are ready, he
stores them in
small wooden barrels at the back of the
cave. Each barrel has
with a label on it giving the name
of the powder.”
“What sort of names?” I asked.
“Wait”, my father said. “That comes later. So
every night, as soon as it is dark, The BFG gets ready
to go visiting. He has a huge black suitcase
very large one,
and the inside of it
suitcase is divided up into lots of tiny
square compartments or holes. He fills each compartment with a
different powder and he takes great care to see that they
are all properly labelled. When he goes out at night, he
always takes two things with him, the suitcase with the
powders in it and a long hollow, blow-pipe.”
The kettle was boiling now and my father poured the
water into the mugs and stirred them well. He gave me
mine first, then fetched his own and settled down again on
the edge of the bunk.
“Have you ever seen him?” I asked. “The BFG?” //
