About the book: 

James and the Giant Peach is one of the top 5 bestselling Roald Dahl books. James Henry Trotter lives with two ghastly hags - Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker who are horrid to him. He's very lonely until one day something peculiar happens. 

At the end of the garden a peach starts to grow and GROW AND GROW. Inside that peach are seven very unusual creepy-crawlies all waiting to take James on a magical adventure! 

Now it's time for you to join James, The Centipede, The Earthworm and the rest of the gang in this bug-packed journey around the world of insects. It's packed with fascinating facts about creepy-crawlies, and fun activities to try at home such as making an ant farm and building your very own bug hotel!

About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favour of a job that would take him to ‘a wonderful faraway place’. 

In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939 he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. 

Thereafter his children’s books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years.
