James and the Giant Peach





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



My card features an image of James and his friends and a Giant Peach. Colored with markers mated on paper with a skyline of houses showing James escape to the city. Lisa

  1. My daughter had an audio cassette of this story when she was little - I can still hear it in my head now! Your fun card is a great tribute to the book with loads of creative ideas. Thanks for joining The Library.
