James, a very unhappy boy, lived with his two mean aunts. One day a mysterious little man gave him tiny magic stones. This is the story of the amazing accidental adventure that happened when a peach grew to the size of a house, and James met oversized insects and other ordinarily tiny creatures - all because of the magic stones.

I might be a little bias to this book because the movie scared me when I was a kid and I was forced to read the book...

A wonderful novel by one of the worlds greatest children's authors. Dahl always finds a way to fill every book with magic, adventure and a good moral message. He'll also make you think twice about stepping on certain insects.
