Another great and classic children’s book from Roald Dahl.

James and the Giant Peach tells the story of a young boy who is forced to live with his evil aunts after his parents die. He is given a special potion to make him happier than ever and when he spills the contents, the results are huge. James goes on a journey with his new friends and creates the life he never had.

This was such a cute book and I high recommend it to anyone who hasn’t read it or isn’t sure. Although it is on the banned book list, it’s hard to imagine why such a story would be denied to children.
