    Book Review James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl is a very creative story built for everyone of all ages to enjoy I think of it as a cross between 3 things 1 Dr Seuss, 2 Jack and the Beanstalk and 3 Harry Potter 4 of 5 stars to this lovely keepsake I had to read this book, when it s my namesake, James But the similarities end there James parents have passed away and he lives with his awful aunt and uncle A mysterious man gives him a package which helps him grow this giant peach And then the peach turns into a house, rolls away into fantasy land and brings tons of new cartoon characters for James to have his own family It s a great children s story younger young adult story to help show the different types of family, love and support one can get So many fun things come from here, it s a must read for all kids My favorite character would probably be the ladybug such a treasure in words and pictures.FYI Wrote this review 2017 from memory as I want to have a review for everything I remember reading If I messed it up, let me know LOL About Me For those new to me or my reviews her...
