My favourite part is at the end when I learned that James wrote the book. My favourite character was James. The book is about a boy who travels with a peach and animals.

There are too many things that make this book a perfect book for children. The story line is extremely well thought of and the book itself is a series of fun adventures that leave you with tingles of excitement. The characters have unique personalities and the amount of imagination put into the book is unbelievable. Dahl transports us to a world of excitement and peculiarity in James and the Giant Peach.

Great book. It kept me occupied for a while...

I read this book aloud to my 6 year old son. It is the first chapter book that really grabbed him. At the end of almost every chapter he would ask, "Can we read just ONE more chapter." The illustrations really helped him transition from picture book to chapter book as well.

What a wonderful story! Poor James is so lonely but then magic comes into his life and he ends up with more friends than he could ever have imagined! It's a pity these sort of cures for loneliness don't happen in real life! But they sure make for a fun tale!

I have finished the book called, “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl a fantasy book. The central idea or main idea is that James is the protagonist. He lives with his aunt. He had some magical crystals. Then one night he dropped the magical crystals on an old tree and the tree transformed into a giant peach! Then James went to look for an entrance into the peach. When he had crawled inside he found Grasshopper, Ladybug, Centipede, Spider, Worm and more. When the stem of the peach broke off it rolled all the way down there Spider had to come up and spider web the seagulls otherwise they would all sink and die! With the seagulls help and the Spiders help they have survived. Later the seagulls drop them off at the top of the Empire state building, at the top. The cops were at the base and 3 of them fainted. What will happen next?
