CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • "We’ll just come right out and say it: James and the Giant Peach is one of the finest children’s books ever written." – Amazon.com
  • "It is the craziest of fantasies wrapped tightly in a chapter book perfect for a first grade read-aloud or for the young, independent reader." – Jacki Vawter, Children
  • "Each character has a unique voice, aptly suiting each personality, and Irons tells the story with humor and energy. Fans of Dahl will not be disappointed in this briskly paced tale that is a delight from beginning to end." – Teresa Bateman, School Library Journal
