"Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian...[His] stories work better in audio than in print." - The New York Times


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!

Strange, magical things start happening when James accidentally drops some magic crystals under a withered old peach tree in his mean aunts' yard. A peach at the top of the tree starts to grow, and grow, and grow, and soon, James is off on an amazing adventure with his new friends - a group of giant bugs and insects - all living inside the amazing giant peach. Narrated by Julian Rhind-Tutt, this is one of the best of the new audio book releases of Dahl's work. Recommended for all!
