Product description

“A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero” – David Walliams

From the world’s NUMBER ONE STORYTELLER, James and the Giant peach is a children’s classic that has captured young reader’s imaginations for generations.

James Henry Trotter lives with two ghastly hags.

Aunt Sponge is enormously fat with a face that looks boiled and Aunt Spiker is bony and screeching.

He’s very lonely until one day something peculiar happens. . .

At the end of the garden a peach starts to grow and GROW AND GROW. Inside that peach are seven very unusual insects – all waiting to take James on a magical adventure.

But where will they go in their GIANT PEACH, and what will happen to the horrible aunts if they stand in their way?

There’s only one way to find out . . .

    Fabulous!!

    I read this book as a six year old and I absolutely loved it! I laughed out loud several times and (being a six year old) got really scared too! There is so much imagination in it, which is what makes it so amazing! This was one of the books that completely turned me into a bookworm!
