When James, a boy stuck living with his cantankerous aunts, is given magic crystals by a sympathetic wizard, he accidentally drops them at the foot of the peach tree outside his house, causing one of the fruits to grow the size of a house. Inside he finds oversized insects who promise him deliverance from his aunts, and soon the giant peach is rolling downhill, bound for the Atlantic Ocean and beyond on a magnificent adventure that will take James and his new friends far indeed.

Because of the story's macabre and occasionally frightening content, it has become a regular target of the censors and is no. When James Henry Trotter was four years old, his parents were gobbled up by a rhinoceros not far from their seaside home, and he has since been forced to live with his horrid aunts, Spiker Trotter and Sponge Trotter , who treat him like a slave, keep him in the attic and only feed him fish heads. One afternoon when he is crying in the woods James stumbles across a friendly wizard, who mysteriously understands his plight and gives him some magic crystals that he promises will bring happiness.
