Description

From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG!

Roald Dahl was a champion of the underdog and all things little--in this case, an orphaned boy oppressed by two nasty, self-centered aunts. How James escapes his miserable life with the horrible aunts and becomes a hero is a Dahlicious fantasy of the highest order. You will never forget resourceful little James and his new family of magically overgrown insects--a ladybug, a spider, a grasshopper, a glowworm, a silkworm, and the chronic complainer, a centipede with a hundred gorgeous shoes. Their adventures aboard a luscious peach as large as a house take them across the Atlantic Ocean, through waters infested with peach-eating sharks and skies inhabited by malevolent Cloudmen, to a ticker-tape parade in New York City.

This happily ever after contemporary fairy tale is a twentieth-century classic that every child deserves to know. And Lane Smith's endearingly funny illustrations are a perfect match for the text.

All the gruesome imagery of old-fashioned fairy tales and a good measure of their breathtaking delight. --Kirkus Reviews

A stunning book, to be cherished for its story, a superb fantasy. --The Chicago Tribune

The most original fantasy that has been published in a long time...[it] may well become a classic. --San Francisco Chronicle
