Roald Dahl's classic children's novel is now a motion picture from The Walt Disney Company, and this version of James and the Giant Peach grew out of the making of the movie. Lane Smith, conceptual artist for the film, has given James and company a new and arresting look, much in the style of his many highly regarded books, such as Math Curse and The Stinky Cheeseman. Karey Kirkpatrick, the film's screenwriter, created a text that is true to the spirit of Dahl's original, and deftly pulls young readers into the remarkable story. All in all, it's a peach of a book sure to be the pick of every child's bookshelf! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Lane Smith trades stinky cheese for fantastic fruit with his black-and-white illustrations for Roald Dahl's classic 1961 novel, James and the Giant Peach. The reissue is timed to coincide with the release of the Disney animated motion picture based on Smith's suitably subversive visual interpretation.

Great book for 7-9 year olds to read themselves or to read to 5-7 year olds. Why aren't there more Roald Dahls?Published 6 days ago by R. Holmquist
I read this to my 5 year old. She seemed to really enjoy it. Quite a bit of the humor went over her head but I think she enjoyed the general fantastical nature of the story. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Gareth Cox

This book was awesome, a little worn which was to be expected but I feel like that gives it more characterPublished 15 days ago by Kelsey
