Description-
  • 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!

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine An absolute treat. Roald Dahl's now classic story of a boy who escapes household tyranny and finds adventure by way of a magical peach is elevated to new heights by Jeremy Irons's performance. Irons is unfettered as the whimsical and sometimes sardonic insect comrades of James, creating vivid, unforgettable characters you'll be sorry to say good-bye to. A fine entertainment for all, and a valuable addition to the family's audio bookshelf. This is an instance in which a highly talented star is let loose in the candy store of the imagination and has the good manners to share the treats with everyone. D.J.B.
