James and the Giant Peach

Quote: “I’d rather be fried alive and eaten by Mexicans.”











My Review: 

James and the giant peach is a marvelous tween book for young teens to read.
This book is weird but pulls the reader into the story. All the madness makes for a wonderfully written book by Roald Dahl!  This book intrigues your curiosity but do not be fooled, this story will always be upside down. It’s cute and I highly recommend this story as well as any Roald Dahl stories for tweens or even teenagers. This author has a very unique way of writing as well as thinking, I loved to be able to read such a different perspective.
