“James and the giant peach”, is an excellent book written by Roald Dahl. The story is based on a boy called James who lives with his two evil aunts who always tell him to work like cleaning and gardening. One day, James was grieving on his bad luck and then a man came and gave him seeds and said to plant them and his luck will be changed. So James planted seeds and it grew into very big peach. When everyone caught the sight of peach where the two aunts lived then all the media and the people went to their house to see that peach and aunts gave their interview saying we have grown the peach. They also took a lot of money from people to see the peach and both of them became rich in two days and didn’t give anything to James rather locked him into the room at night. But somehow, James came out of the room and saw the enormous peach. He thought ‘how tasty it would be?’ and went near the peach, to his surprise; he saw a hole in it. The hole was big so he went inside the hole and side by side ate it too. When he estimated that he is near the peach’s centre then, he saw a big room and in it he saw big insects which were grasshopper, lady bug, spider and worm. They all were talking to each other and when they saw James then they told him to sit and talked to him and this made James very surprised but then he adjusted in it. By a lot of weight, the peach went down the hill and stopped at the bridge from where the adventure was to be started as they all tied the peach with a group of birds and went in the sky with it. Then they were caught near the factory of cloudmen. From where they were again in an adventure and then they fell down on a hill and from where their happiness started as the mayor of town gave them place to live and they became famous.
I know that roald dahl has died but then also I am sending this book rewiew as his books are the best.
