It started with a peach.
This last week, I read “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl. I have always loved Roald Dahl’s work. This book did not disappoint.
It is about a young boy named James who is orphaned when his parents get killed in an unusual accident. He is sent to live with his two cruel aunts. To say they treated him poorly would be the understatement of a lifetime. However, things begin to look up when he discovers a piece of magic. Talking insects and wild imaginations included. James and his crew of insect and spider friends set off on a journey to reach his destination dream of New York. Did I mention that their mode of transportation was a giant peach?
A fabulous story with a fabulous ending. I loved this book and it is nothing less than a Roald Dahl book. Such imagination was put into this book and many strange incidents allowed this story to be fun. This book would definitely hit the spot for somebody that likes to open up their mind a little bit. Use your imagination and just let loose.
