‘Bigger and bigger grew the peach, bigger and bigger and BIGGER.’James Henry Trotter is about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.
James lives his awful Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, two of the meanest people you can imagine.
Life isn’t much fun at all, until something peculiar happens at the bottom of his garden . . .
A peach at the very top of a tree begins to grow . . . and grow . . . and GROW! Inside are seven very unusual insects – all waiting to take James on a magical journey.
