A little magic can take you a long way. When James Henry Trotter accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree, 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. Then James discovers a secret entranceway into the fruit, and when he crawls inside, he meets a bunch of marvelous oversized friends -- Old Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, Miss Spider, and more. After years of feeling like an outsider in the house of his despicable Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, James has finally found a place where he belongs. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the exciting adventure begins! Performed by Jeremy Irons.

It was adapted into a film of the same name in The plot centres on a young English orphan boy who enters a gigantic, magical peach , and has a wild and surreal cross-world adventure with seven magically-altered garden bugs he meets. Roald Dahl was originally going to write about a giant cherry , but changed it to James and the Giant Peach because a peach is "prettier, bigger and squishier than a cherry. Because of the story's occasional macabre and potentially frightening content, it has become a regular target of censors. Unfortunately, while visiting London, James' parents are killed by a rhinoceros that has escaped from the zoo. Their house is sold, and the orphaned James is forced to live with his two abusive aunts, Spiker and Sponge.
