I loved this book as a kid because I loved Roald Dahl. I liked it as an adult too - I like the whimsy of it, but the story itself was a little anticlimactic. James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl is a sweet, fictitious tale of a boy and the adventure he takes to escape his abusive aunts. He is confined to the hellish hill Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker have Roald pronounced "Roo-aal" was born in Llandaff, South Wales. He had a relatively uneventful childhood and was educated at Repton School. Prompted by an interviewer, he turned an account of one of his war experiences into a short story that was accepted by the Saturday Evening Post, which were eventually collected in Over to You
He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated. Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time.
