Well, what would you expect from a world-renowned author of children's books? Roald Dahl really was a professional story-teller. James and the Giant Peach is just among his many wonderful works.
Who can believe that its been half a century since James Trotter walked up to a giant peach, stepped inside and shared a magnificent adventure with a grasshopper, spider, ladybug,centipede and an earth worm. Together they weathered many a storm and changed their fortune by working together. This story is a classic that has consistently stayed on the bookshelves of my home and is a story I have shared with all of my children. Roald Dahl put together a masterpiece with the creation of this story, and I hope my children pass it along with as much fondness as I have to them.
I knew when i picked up this book i would love it because its by Roald dahl and hes one of my favorite author.If you like this author then you'll definatley like james and the giant peach
