By Mera Damiri (9-H)

The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a children’s literature book written by the British novelist Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake in 1982. Later in 2016, Steven Spielberg directed and produced a movie based on this fantastical book. The book revolves around the lonely orphan, Sophie who is ready to go to sleep when she hears an obstreperous noise. Frozen in fear while staring at the colossal and abnormal creature with humungous ears and with eyes glistening in the moonlight, she witnessses the monster for the first time.Later in the book, what seems a nightmarish giant, turns out to be affable,amiable, and uneducated. Sophie is taken to the Giant country where they live; however, she learns that these creatures are human eating machines. Fortunately,the BFG only eats snozzcumbers, and it has come to light that the benevolent giant is a dream catcher and destroyer of nightmares.

POINTS TO PONDER, POEM

Points to Ponder - Poem - Thamer International Schools

By Ahd Ahmed (8-H)

If there is a future there is time for mending - Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.

Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow - If you're looking forward to a new tomorrow.

If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping - When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.

Though your heart be heavy and hurt you may be feeling - If there is time for praying there is time for healing.
