Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When James drops magic crystals by the peach tree, the toy peach starts growing, and before long, it's as big as a house, with a secret entranceway.

Synopsis:

A little magic can take you a long way.

After James Henry Trotter's parents are tragically eaten by a rhinoceros, he goes to live with his two horrible aunts, Spiker and Sponge. Life there is no fun, until James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree and 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. Inside, James meets a bunch of oversized friends—Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, and more. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the great adventure begins!

Synopsis:

It's the 50th anniversary of James and the Giant Peach! Come celebrate and join James Trotter and his friendsÑGrasshopper, Earthworm, Miss Spider - on an adventure inside a giant magical peach.
