Book Description

James and the Giant Peach is a favourite tale of the most marvelous adventure by Roald Dahl.



An enormous escaped rhinoceros from London Zoo has eaten James's parents. And it gets worse! James is packed off to live with his two really horrible aunts, Sponge and Spiker. Poor James is miserable, until something peculiar happens and James finds himself on the most wonderful and extraordinary journey he could ever imagine . . .



"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams



***with an exciting look into Roald Dahl's world***



Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.



Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

    Un'avventura in piena regola, soprattutto durante il volo transoceanico, con qualche spunto di riflessione anche. Bello il messaggio d'amicizia che ne traspare, e anche quello sul valore positivo della diversità e dell'integrazione (gli animali, seppur punzecchiandosi come il lombrico e il millep ...continue

    Un'avventura in piena regola, soprattutto durante il volo transoceanico, con qualche spunto di riflessione anche. Bello il messaggio d'amicizia che ne traspare, e anche quello sul valore positivo della diversità e dell'integrazione (gli animali, seppur punzecchiandosi come il lombrico e il millepiedi, sono molto uniti e lo si vede bene quando James deve tuffarsi nel vuoto per salvare uno di essi. Oppure quando arrivano a New York dove, se all'inizio l'ignoto, il "diverso" fa paura, alla fine gli animali si integreranno perfettamente con gli umani).
    Prosa meravigliosa, racconto godibilissimo e sprazzi geniali, come sempre del resto con questo autore (la presa in giro verso i poliziotti è esilarante).

    Dopo tre anni interi che James Henry Trotter viveva con le zie, ci fu una mattina in cui gli accadde una cosa abbastanza strana. E questa cosa che, come dicevo, era solo abbastanza strana, diede origine a una seconda cosa molto strana. E poi la cosa molto strana diede a sua volta origine a una cosa davvero incredibilmente strana.

    Recensione di Bianca

    Bianca (5 anni)
    è un libro bello e avventuroso. Mi piace che si svolge in una pesca. Ho avuto paura delle le zie e gli omini delle nuvole.

    Aw this was just a lovely children's book. Its such a brilliant story its obvious why it was such a big hit with kids and remains a popular kids book to this day. Big huge insects as your friends, living in a giant peach, flying to America by way of seagulls! I love it so why wouldn't a child! I don't have kids yet but I know that when I do they will all be Roald Dahl lovers if I have anything to do with it!

    Okay, I had seen the movie way before I knew the book existed, but then I read back in 2003 and I liked it, but on a whim I decided to read it again in one night, and I fell in love with it. I actually had this whole new appreciation for its comical quips.

    I love Mr. Earthworm, he is so entertaining and I just love his character. Really all of them are wonderful, but he just stood out.
    Ms. Ladybug and Ms. Spider were also very high favorites.

    The adventures of the peach and the marvelous things that James and his insect friends encounter are all made of the things children imagine in their dreams and fantasy games.

    This book is a must read and I must have a copy.
