In a house that was close to the beach lived a little boy, named James, with two parents. One day his parents died by a rhinoceros attack. The little boy went to live with his terrible aunts first. I feel bad for that boy. But one day an old man came up to him and gave him a special thing that stops his nightmares with his aunts. Running back inside, James dropped the special plants and they formed a vast peach that the little boy crawled into. In there he found Ladybug, Grasshopper, Centipede, and Spider.
This is a really good fantasy book. If you don’t like fantasy books this is not your type of book. Most of Roald Dahl’s books are fantasy books. If you already read this book and you like it, there are some other books by him you might like: Magic Finger, George’s Marvelous Medicine, and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
