    "Many of you probably read "James and the Giant Peach" as a child - and I wanted to let you know that this is still a FANTASTIC book. I recently read the book again and I found the book just as fascinating as before. The entire premise of this book opens up the imagination part of your brain and makes you start to feel like a child again. I felt like I was 10 years old again and had just finished immersing myself in this book. My own children also read the book and they also thoroughly enjoyed the book. "

    "James and the Giant Peach is a classic written in 1961, it's been adopted into a movie and have read by many. The writing is really good and there are many fun characters as well as a adventure that can be followed by the reader. The story is one of a kind and the characters are in side a peach house."

    "James and the Giant Peach is such a classic. I get it's about food but that's not really the point, not even food, a peach. Great movie though! I think I just don't like the wording of the topic."

    "The character design in this book is extremely humorous. The adventures that James and his friends go on are fun and kooky. This book is guaranteed to work the imagination of little ones that you have."

    "This book is perfect for reading aloud because the chapters are fairly short and very engaging. Children don't become bored while reading it. My daughter who is learning to read loves reading this book every night before bedtime. It is challenging but not too difficult to read. "

    "I grew up watching the movie, but recently read the book. The book is a bit weird, too obscure and even thou the premise of a whimsical journey in a peach sounds appealing, the overall plot or message of the book was unclear. This is one of those cases in which I prefer the movie to the book. It's appropiate for all ages thou it's suppoused to be for children, it's imaginative but disturbing."

    "Probably the most popular book Roald Dahl, James and the Giant peach is a must read for any fan of his. The whole story is ridiculous in all the right ways as James goes for the adventure of a lifetime inside a giant peach."
