Inside he finds oversized insects who promise him deliverance from his aunts, and soon the giant peach is rolling downhill, bound for the Atlantic Ocean and beyond on a magnificent adventure that will take James and his new friends far indeed.

James and the Giant Peach is one of my favorites by Roald Dahl. At the beginning, you feel sorry for James and then he makes friends, travels to places he's never been...it's just a nice story, with good characters. You could read this multiple times.
