When I was growing up I loved this book. I can't even tell you how many times that I checked it out of the library, to transport into a world of fantasy. I always felt invested in the story and wanted to crawl inside that giant peach with James and our insect friends. Do you remember the Old Green Grasshopper? I just remember the beautiful message with this story. Basically, James had to look past all of the insect's differences, and not be scared in order for them to become best friends. A beautiful message indeed. I really need to read James and the Giant Peach again after 30 years. Or, how about watching the musical version this weekend!
