James and the Giant Peach Read Online Free - When James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree, strange things start to happen. The peach at the top of the tree begins to grow, and before long it's as big as a house. When James discovers a secret entranceway into the fruit and crawls inside, he meets wonderful new friends--the Old-Green-Grasshopper, the dainty Ladybug, and the Centipede of the multiple boots. After years of feeling like an outsider in his aunts' house, James finally found a place where he belongs. With a snip of the stem, the peach household starts rolling away--and the adventure begins!

When I read this book a very long time ago I rated in 3 stars. I think as an adult I enjoyed reading this book more than I did as a ch...

I had to read this book, when it...

From what I remember as a child (and I had only ever watched the movie), there's a giant fruit, several slightly scary bugs of questionable character and green glowy wormy things.
As I (finally) read the book, m...
