From the Publisher
Matilda Wormwood is only five years old, but she is a genius. Unfortunately, her parents are too stupid to even notice. Worse, her horrible headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is a bully who makes life difficult—especially for Matilda's teacher, Miss Honey, and her friends. However, what Miss Trunchbull doesn't know is that Matilda is an incredibly clever child and has a trick or two up her sleeve...
Nobody has seen Willy Wonka—or the inside of his amazing chocolate factory—in years. When Wonka announces his plans to invite the winners of five Golden Tickets to visit his factory, the whole world is after those tickets! Little Charlie Bucket longs to find a Golden Ticket and get the chance to visit the mysterious factory and well, he has just as much chance as anyone else, doesn’t he?
James Henry Trotter lives with his two horrid aunts, Spiker and Sponge, who never let him have fun or play with other children. He hasn't got a single friend in the whole wide world. That is, not until he meets the Old Green Grasshopper and the rest of the insects aboard a giant, magical peach!
The Big Friendly Giant, BFG, is unlike other giants. For a start, he’d rather eat repulsant snozzcumbers than chomp on innocent children—lucky for little Sophie, he is far too nice and jumbly. It's not long before the BFG becomes Sophie's very best friend, and the pair are hatching a clever plan to deal with the cruel and nasty giants—with a very exceptional ally.

James And The Giant Peach is one of my favourite books that have been made by Roald Dahl, just because of the way its been written. It's like you're actually there on the peach with them. Also, the characters actually have some detailed personalities between each of them. My favourite character is Centipede, he's honestly a really funny character and always makes me laugh.
The best part of the story was when they went through the clouds and saw the Cloud-Men. After they saw them, Centipede started insulting them, which was hilarious.
The plot of the story was amazing, and it actually made me feel like I was there in person. Also one of my other favourite parts was when he met the "creatures" that had eaten the green crystal-like orbs that dug into the ground.
Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker also are two very "interesting" characters, that both boss James around to do stuff that needs doing (that mind you, he doesn't want to do).
Overall very interesting story. Highly recommend for readers who like books that have a detailed storyline.
There you go, my son enjoyed it and I hope you all enjoyed reading his review!

One of the advantages of having children is that you get to enjoy reading the children's classics again, and pick up the subtleties you missed the first time.
Read to your kids, it's good for them and for you, and I'm addressing you dad's out there!
