Product Description

When James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree, strange things start to happen. The peach at the top of the tree begins to grow, and before long it's as big as a house. Then James discovers a secret entranceway into the fruit, and when he crawls inside, he meets a bunch of oversized friends-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, and more. After years of feeling like an outsider in his aunts' house, James has finally found a place where he belongs. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the adventure begins! Recommended for ages 9-12.

Publisher's Description

Roald Dahl's perennial bestseller about a boy's magical journey across the sea, James and the Giant Peach, celebrates its fiftieth anniversary in 2011. When James, a boy stuck living with his cantankerous aunts, is given magic crystals by a sympathetic wizard, he accidentally drops them at the foot of the peach tree outside his house, causing one of the fruits to grow the size of a house. Inside he finds oversized insects who promise him deliverance from his aunts, and soon the giant peach is rolling downhill, bound for the Atlantic Ocean and beyond on a magnificent adventure that will take James and his new friends far indeed.
