About This Item
James and the Giant Peach is a popular children's novel written in 1961 by British author Roald Dahl. The novel features an English orphan boy named James Henry Trotter cared for by his two abusive aunts. James finds a tunnel in a gigantic peach and enters into a magical world where he befriends seven bugs. He proceeds to embark on a wild adventure with his insect friends, getting into trouble and saving them from sticky situations. The book has frequently become the target of censorship due to its infrequent gruesome and potentially horrifying content. It was adapted into a film of the same name in 1996.
This is a First printing of the trade edition bound in green and black cloth with gold lettering on spine. Not an ex-library Edition or the school edition which can be identified by the red binding.
