The garden, which covered the whole of the top of the hill, was large and desolate, and the only tree in the entire place (apart from a clump of dirty old laurel bushes at the far end) was an ancient peach tree that never gave any peaches. There was no swing, no seesaw, no sand pit, and no other children were ever invited to come up the hill to play with poor James. There wasn't so much as a dog or a cat around to keep him company.

James and the Giant Peach is a popular children's novel written in 1961 by British author Roald Dahl. It was adapted into a film of the same name in 1996.

Sir Quentin Blake's relationship with Roald Dahl began with a handshake in a publisher’s office, when half a dozen of Dahl’s books had already been published in the UK and illustrated by other people. For the first two books Blake worked on, The Enormous Crocodile and The Twits, the interaction between author and illustrator was slight. There was also, famously, much discussion about what the BFG should wear.

Many of us are familiar with this story so I am going to comment on how I used it. My husband reads to our son at night. He has a short attention span but we want him to get longer books to build his comprehension. This book is great because it is engaging, but the short chapters make it easy to read only a small section each night. My son loves "peach book."

The story is a timeless classic and deserves to be. Every kid should have this book on their shelf. I'm taking three stars off for two things that are particular to this edition that make it a truly horrible rendition of this book. First, I ordered a hardcover edition of this book, and it is technically a hardcover. But it happens to be a hardcover the size of a typical paperback. Even worse someone thought it would be a great idea to print the text in peach colored ink, making reading it very difficult and without getting headaches. Total garbage.

My 7 year old son had to write a book report on a play or script so I needed to find something that would be appropriate for his age. I found this book on Amazon and hoped that he would enjoy it. He loved it! He loved the wonderful Roald Dahl story, but also how the book gives helpful tips for stage setting and costumes. He wants to put on this play himself! Customers need to realize this is a SCRIPT for a PLAY of "James and the Giant Peach". It has been ADAPTED from the original story to serve the purpose of theatre. If that fits your needs, I highly recommend this book!

I read this before reading it to my child and was I ever grateful for the touching story with just enough tension and suspense. It is so hard to find books that actually develop characters, have a moral unfolding, but neither scold nor over expose children. I am really not into the books that have jaded ill tempered kids as the character or in the end some beloved animal dies and this just avoids that whole obscene circus feel. It is a delightful gem which shows you a beginning understanding of nuance in the young fellow. Funny, I had never heard of this one until I picked it up randomly at the library. I really loved it so much I had to buy a copy so we would have it in the shelf.

I ended up not using this for my classroom because some of the rhymes were a little too off color for my students. I mean, I thought they were great and most of them were really good -- very Dahl-esque. Some of them had some issues with translation... as in, I believe "slut" might have a different meaning than we use commonly in the US and my 5th graders would have not have handled it well. Or, I wouldn't have handled my 5th graders' reactions well. :)

My favorite book by Dahl as a child, and still, as an adult. I remember laughing and laughing at the fate of the silly pig who trusted Red Riding Hood (though I also remember not being entirely sure what it meant when she "pulled the pistol from her knickers" ... I believe I decided it meant "socks" back then. :)

This purchase was to provide copies for both of my nieces.

It was fun, right?! We liked everything about this book. It was an awesome book to read together. We enjoyed thinking of things that could possibly happen next. Every night after we finish reading a couple chapters we would imagine what might happen next. What a great book! My son (4) just asked: can we read it again?
A great book, a classic. Our six-year old son loves it. A pheasant randomly wandered into our rural yard last week, and when he was telling me he had seen it, I asked him if he tried to feed it raisins... our six year old said "no Dad, I would have had to soak them in gin for a week!!" Awesome.
