Description

When disaster strikes his parents, James is orphaned and must go to live with his mean aunts in the country. Nothing goes right for him until a mysterious old man brings him a magical package that makes a peach grow to magnificent proportions. Stepping inside the giant peach, James discovers the joys of friendship—with a group of giant insects. Suddenly, the peach begins to roll, flattening his aunts, falling off the White Cliffs of Dover and splashing into the Atlantic Ocean. Attacked by sharks, the new friends use their ingenuity to escape, but other hair-raising adventures await them. Ages 5 and up.
