A bad trip on the fun dipFrom what I remember from the movie I saw during rainy day recess in first grade there's giant fruit several oversized scary bugs and green glowy wormy things It was so surreal and scary to me at the time that I've avoided the movie ever sinceAs I finally read the book my scattered childhood memories fell into place And my initial impression remains essentially the same A really bad trip on the fun dip “I'd rather be fried alive and eaten by Mexicans” Honestly what was Dahl on when he wrote this James lives with two terrible old women whose main form of parenting is verbal abuse and infringement of child labor laws A chance encounter with a slightly creepy and definitely odd and uite frankly suspiciously pedophilic if the uotes are taken out of context old man leads to a new sort of adventure Come right up close to me and I will show you something wonderful James is gifted with a bag of pure magic Only he manages to spoil his chance at happiness by spilling the bagAll is lostor is itOvernight the sole peach on the peach tree begins to grow and grow and growJames soon learns that within that gigantic peach are some extremely large and peculiar new friends And soon his drab and dreary world takes on a whole new light We are now about to visit the most marvelous places and see the most wonderful things When comparing the book to the vague memory of the movie I am pleased to announce that the peach really was as large as I remembered the bugs are actually delightfully charming and at last I know why the glowy green worms were so important The book brought several details to my attention that I hadn't known before such as the whimsical cloudmen and Dahl's explanation for how weather works At times the book seemed to lose its direction but nonetheless a thoroughly enjoyable read Audiobook CommentsI absolutely love all of the Dahl audiobooks So much fun excitement and sound effects Every detail comes so alive Read by Julian Rhind Tutt and lasting only 35 hours this one is certainly a great listenYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

James and the Giant PeachS big as a house and James discovers a secret entranceway into the mammoth fruit When he crawls inside James meets a bunch of friendly oversized insects With a snip. For a brief period in my childhood I was obsessed with this After seeing the trailer I noticed that the movie trailer tie in edition was available in the next month's book order form so I had to have it to read before I saw itThen I saw the movie and of course really loved it It was whimsical and visually appealing even if it did deviate from the source material in partsI even remember wanting to only eat and drink peach stuff for a while and since it was the 90's I had to have my Snapple Peach Iced TeaSo that's it just some warm nostalgia I will always have for this book
