At the beginning of this book, James' parents are eaten and he is left to live with two very mean aunts. I think Lemony Snicket might be a Roald Dahl fan. Through a twist of fate, James accidently grows a giant Peach. Eventually he finds a hole in it and inside, some giant bugs. He and the bugs take off on a fanciful (like the book wasn't already!) journey. Fun, short book that's a quick read and quite entertaining. Challenged for: use of the word "ass"; promotes smoking and drinking by mentioning wine, tobacco and snuff.
