A little boy named James has to live with his two evil aunts after his parents die and they treat him horribly. One day a giant peach grew from their, once barren, peach tree, and James found a hole in it big enough for him to climb through. He made it to the seed of the peach and met his newfound friends that he traveled from England to America with on a very interesting journey.
I have finished the book called, “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl a fantasy book. The central idea or main idea is that James is the protagonist. He lives with his aunt. He had some magical crystals. Then one night he dropped the magical crystals on an old tree and the tree transformed into a giant peach! Then James went to look for an entrance into the peach. When he had crawled inside he found Grasshopper, Ladybug, Centipede, Spider, Worm and more. When the stem of the peach broke off it rolled all the way down there Spider had to come up and spider web the seagulls otherwise they would all sink and die! With the seagulls help and the Spiders help they have survived. Later the seagulls drop them off at the top of the Empire state building, at the top. The cops were at the base and 3 of them fainted. What will happen next?
