Roald Dahl's classic underdog tale of an orphaned boy oppressed by two nasty, self-centered aunts. How James escapes his miserable life to become a hero is a Dahlicious fantasy of the highest order. The resourceful James and his new family of magically overgrown insects aboard a luscious peach as large as a house to take them across the Atlantic Ocean, through waters infested with peach-eating sharks and skies inhabited by malevolent Cloudmen, to a ticker-tape parade in New York City. This happily ever after contemporary fairy tale is a twentieth-century classic that every child deserves to know.
