This one in particular will teach you juicy exclamations like "brain full of bugwhiffles" and "awful rubbsquash" and "trogglehumping bogthumping grobswitcher." And more. Underneath the cute surface story about a girl and a giant lies a dark story about a little girl straightening out an old man who kidnaps her, waves around a giant cucumber that had a clearly phallic appearance, lets loose lots of farts, and tries to make friends with her. She even kisses him once. He even kisses her back. You filthy cantankerous jokester, Roald, you had quite a few secret laughs writing this, didn't you? It's okay. I forgive you.
