Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach

James Henry Trotter, 4 years old, lives with his loving parents in a beautiful cottage by the sea in the south of England.

James' happy life comes to an abrupt end when his parents are killed by a rhinoceros and he goes to live with his two horrid aunts. Daringly saving the life of a spider he comes into possession of magic boiled crocodile tongues, after which an enormous peach starts to grow in the garden. Venturing inside he meets not only the spider but a number of new friends including a ladybug and a centipede who help him with his plan to try and get to New York.

This classic and exciting tale of a brave boy's escape from his evil aunts with the help of some friendly insects and 'one enormous peach' - will make you smile, laugh and cry. Join James and his new-found insect friends as they embark on an extraordinary adventure which takes them halfway around the world with a soundtrack of the best music of 1962 when Roald Dahl wrote this most loved children's favorite.
