James and the Giant Peach

Book Review by Amelia

Title: James and the Giant Peach

Author: Roald Dahl


I picked James and the Giant Peach because it looked fun.

The book has some illustrations and good descriptions.

The main characters are James Henry Trotter, Mr Grasshopper, Mr Centipede, Ms Spider, Mrs Ladybug, Mr Earthworm and Glow-worm.

A quick story summary is that orphaned James goes on an adventure across the sea in a giant flying peach, with six insect friends to a famous city.


This book made me feel happy.  It is good fun and I would recommend it for children who are in years 2,3 and 4. 


I would give this book 5 stars.
