James and the Giant Peach
Ever since James’s parents were devoured by a stampeding rhinoceros, he’s lived miserably with two unspeakably horrible aunts. Then one day a mysterious stranger appears with a bag of crocodile tongues. So begins a miraculous journey of dreams… James finds himself inside a giant peach with the strangest friends for company: an enormous Spider, a very musical Grasshopper, a kindly Glow-Worm, and a Centipede with a hundred boots to take on and off! And that’s not all: the peach is moving! Taking readers right across the Atlantic Ocean with a host of motley characters, this Roald Dahl classic is simply not to be missed.
