The "Childchewer" is one of the nine man-eating giants that live in Giant Country. He has a grayish goatee and hair and is balding. Among the gang of man-eating giants, his closest friend is the Meatdripper. Hence his name, he takes the most pleasure out of eating "human bean" children.
He along with the Fleshlumpeater, Bloodbottler, Meatdripper, Gizzardgulper, Maidmasher, Bonecruncher, Manhugger, and Butcher Boy enjoy snatching and gobbling up little children at night while The BFG delivers dreams to the children.
