Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller! 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 . . "A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" - David Walliams Now you can listen to James and the Giant Peach and other Roald Dahl AUDIOBOOKS read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! Also look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleThis was an amazingly phenomenal book. I couldn't remember if I had read this growing up or not. I distinctly remember the movie, but I don't think I ever read the actual book. So I picked up a copy of the audiobook from the library to listen to while ...

4.0 James and the Giant Peach review
James and the Giant Peach has always been one of my favorite books. I have always enjoyed all of Ronald Dahl's stories.

3.0 James and the Giant Peach
