really liked it

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl is a great book to read if you dont know what's the right book for you to read. It is about thisboy named James Henry Trotter. He is very miserable after his parents died in a bad, strange rhinoceros accident. He had no choice to move in with his mean aunts named Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. Aunt Sponge was very big and round. Aunt Spiker was very tal and skinny. James was very miserable for three years living with them. One day James came across this old man who had some magic cystals. He said that they would take James out of of his misery. Accidentally, James dropped te crystals on his aunts' peach tree. He noticed that a peach started to grow and grow. When it was as big as it could get James went inside the peach and that was when his misery changed. He made some life-size insect friends. They rolled rolled down the hill together and set off on a journey on the giant peach.
I believe Roal Dahls purpose in this story was to tell his readers that, something can always happen. Your luck can always change. I love the end of the story when everyone landed in New York and had a wonderful life. I highly recommend this book and any other stories by Roald Dahl.
