James and the Giant Peach Synopsis

Phizz-whizzing new branding for the world's No.1 storyteller, Roald Dahl!

Exciting, bold and instantly recognisable with Quentin Blake's inimitable artwork. James Henry Trotter lives with two ghastly hags. Aunt Sponge is enormously fat with a face that looks boiled and Aunt Spiker is bony and screeching. He's very lonely until one day something peculiar happens. At the end of the garden a peach starts to grow and Grow and Grow. Inside that peach are seven very unusual insects - all waiting to take James on a magical adventure. But where will they go in their Giant Peach and what will happen to the horrible aunts if they stand in their way? There's only one way to find out.

Listen to the James and the Giant Peach and other Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
