Fantastic book, as a young child this book fueled a lot of curiosity for me, always making me wonder and I cant be more grateful for that. It is one of the many books of my youth that i enjoy re-reading.

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 loosely recommend this book to mature middle school audiences mainly because the book uses the word "ass" a couple of times and some readers may not be able to handle such language, and some paretns may be against exposing their children to words of that nature. The book also refers to other curse words being used, without actually using them. Overall, the book is a great read, although I've seen the movie (loooong ago), it intrigued me so much that I read the entire book in two days (taking up a sum of 3 hours). The journey that James and his insect friends embarked on, the sights they saw, are very interesting and leaves readers wanting more!

Very nice book but has one bad word in it (that's why I think its for older kids) but still one of my favorite story's.(Fantasy adventure.)

A little boy named James has to live with his two evil aunts after his parents die and they treat him horribly. One day a giant peach grew from their, once barren, peach tree, and James found a hole in it big enough for him to climb through. He made it to the seed of the peach and met his newfound friends that he traveled from England to America with on a very interesting journey.
