When James Henry Trotter 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 marvelous oversized friends -- Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, Miss Spider, and more. After years of feeling like an outsider in the house of his despicable Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, James has finally found a place where he belongs. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the exciting adventure begins!
Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916 of Norwegian parents. He grew up in England and lived there until his death in 1990. At the onset of World War II, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. His career as a writer began in 1946, when his first collection of short stories for adults was published, but it was not until 1961, when his first book for children-James and the Giant Peach-was published, that he found his true calling. Dahl wrote more than a dozen children's books, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, The Witches, and Matilda. Together, they made him one of the most popular writers of children's books in the world. Today, he is widely acknowledged as a literary genius who changed children's literature forever.
