Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140382976, Paperback)

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!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:13:32 -0400)

A wildly imaginative tale about a little boy who journeys to a wondrous city "where dreams come true."
