Description de l'ouvrage

16 août 2007
A little magic can take you a long way.

After James Henry Trotter's parents are tragically eaten by a rhinoceros, he goes to live with his two horrible aunts, Spiker and Sponge. Life there is no fun, until James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree and 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. Inside, James meets a bunch of oversized friends—Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, and more. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the great adventure begins!

Revue de presse

"This newly-illustrated edition of an avowed children's favorite has all the makings of a classic match-up: Milne had Shepard, Carroll had Tenniel, and now Dahl has Smith...author and illustrator were made for each other, and it's of little consequence that it took almost 35 years for them to meet" --Kirkus.

Biographie de l'auteur

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

Quentin Blake is a well-known artist whose work has made him popular on both sides of the Atlantic. He has illustrated most of Roald Dahl’s children’s books as well as many others. He lives in London, where he teaches illustration at the Royal College of Art.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Né en 1916 au pays de Galles, Roald Dahl a passé son enfance en Angleterre. Il arrête vite ses études pour voyager et travaille en Afrique pour la compagnie Shell, avant de s'engager dans la Royal Air Force en 1939. Blessé puis rapatrié en Angleterre, Dahl est ensuite attaché d'ambassade aux États-Unis. Dès 1942, il écrit nouvelles et romans pour adultes et se lance dans la littérature de jeunesse en 1961, d'abord pour ses propres enfants. Il enchaîne alors les succès, illustrés par Quentin Blake : James et la grosse pêche, Charlie et la chocolaterie, Mathilda... Dahl voulait éveiller la curiosité, l'imagination et l'amour des livres chez ses jeunes lecteurs ; son œuvre est aujourd'hui mondialement reconnue et trouve sans cesse de nouveaux publics. Roald Dahl est mort en 1990.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Le jeune James et la Pêche Géante 29 octobre 2012
Par Ada Leema TOP 50 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Méconnu du grand public,présenté sous forme de portrait détaillé et complet de l'aventure d'un petit garçon dans un monde imaginaire,ce livre m'a beaucoup plu,un peu comme "Coraline".Roald Dahl,l'auteur,entre autres,de "Charlie and the chocolate factory",se veut facile à lire et accessible au plus grand nombre.
Mission accomplie tant le style et le verbe sont aisés à suivre,tout en étant soigneusement choisi et riche en exemples.
Je vous conseille vivement la lecture de cet ouvrage,pour le plaisir ou bien aussi pour peaufiner votre connaissance des mondes irréels par le biais de celle de cet enfant un peu remuant mais attachant au possible.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My favorite book from childhood. 13 octobre 2003
Par Thomas Leonard Niehans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I first read "James and the Giant Peach" when I was 9 years old (I am 14 now), and reread it so many times that I actually know the story by heart! This book is funny, exciting and makes me use my imagination.

The story: After his parents are eaten by a rhinoceros (I would've made a tiger eat them instead, since in real life rhinos don't eat meat!), young James Henry Trotter has to go live with his two mean aunts named Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, who treat him very very badly. Poor James has to live with his aunts for three whole years until one day a mysterious man gives him a bag of magic things. (He tells him they are crocodile tongues.) James is so excited that he starts running back to the house, but when he is underneath an old peach tree in the garden he accidentally slips and spills all the tiny little things and they dig themselves into the roots of the tree.
Suddenly a peach appears on the very tip of the tree and then starts to grow and grow and doesn't stop until it is as big as a house! The aunts are so excited about this that instead of immediately eating pieces off the peach they start charging people to see the peach. After everyone has left they force James to pick up all the litter that the people left behind. Poor James is left all alone in the dark! For no particular reason, James walks up to the peach and starts touching it. He notices that there is a rather large hole in the peach. He crawls in, and the hole becomes a tunnel. He keeps on crawling until he reaches the center of the peach. He meets seven oversized insects who turn out to have swallowed some of the tiny little things that James had spilled. When the stem snips off (with some help, of course), the peach rolls off and the eight travellers embark on the adventure of a lifetime!

Roald Dahl was my favorite childhood author; I have read most of his children's books, and this is my personal favorite.

I recommend this book to anyone between the ages of 7 and 12.

This is a great book for children from 4 to 10. I am way past that age but I still enjoyed it. Dahl's style of writing is excellent and the story is quite simple and interesting. All in all, an excellent book and I would recommend anyone with children to buy it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 4 1/2* Old-Fashioned Dickensian Fun 21 février 2003
Par M. Allen Greenbaum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
(I am reviewing the 1988 Windrush large print version of the original 1961 book by Dahl. Illustrations are by Michel Simeon.)
This fanciful book's old-fashioned style and content almost feels as if it were written at the turn of the 19th Century, and the James' initial misery recalls Dickens. The writing's rough edges make it seem more like a personal story, rather than the product of some anonymous conglomerate.
Unfortunately, the beginning of the book (where James magically escapes from his aunts) seems contrived, the aunts are unbelievably cruel, and the writing is somehow flat. However, the book picks up after James and his newfound insect friends escape via a magic peach. The bantering and arguing insect personalities are reminiscent of those in "Winnie the Pooh" and "The Wizard of Oz." (The feuding Centipede and Worm are a bit like emotionally labile Tigger and pessimistic Eeyore; the "LadyBird" plays a role similar to the Scarecrow.) The insects' squabbling and fear is balanced by James' good-hearted and well-reasoned actions that save them from sharks, the angry "Cloud People" (who throw hail, water, and rainbow-making paint at them), and the fearful citizens of New York City.
Dahl has lots of word play ("Oh, just look at the vermicious gruesome face!"), and songs done in a kind of "Alice of Wonderland" meets Broadway style: "I've eaten many strange and scrumptious dishes in my time, Like jellied gnats and dandyprats and earwigs cooked in slime, And mice with rice-they're really nice/When roasted in their prime. (But don't forget to sprinkle them with just a pinch of grime.)" As you can see, the humor (and some of Michel Simeon's illustrations for the 1988 edition) is sometimes fun-gothic, and the demise of the aunts is not like that pictured in the movie based on the book (They get run over by the peach.) Overall, however, and despite its slow beginning, the book is stylish and lots of fun.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book Full of Imagination 24 avril 2000
Par kristen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I am a tutor for a young child. I recently read this book to a child who doesn't like to read, and he could not put this book down. From a child's perspective, he found the book easy to read. He said the words jumped off the page giving him images in his mind. He loved the adventure and even put himself in the book as James. He pretended to be on the adventure and enjoyed every page. This book can jump start any child's interest to read. This book installs creativity and a fun love to read in a child.

James and the Giant Peach Penguin Group,1996, 126pp.,$6.99

Roald Dahl ISBN 0 14 03.7424

When a young boy's parents die he is forced to live with his horrid aunts, who have a peach tree that suddenly grew a giant peach at a rapid speed. James got curious and found a tunnel in the peach that leads him to an extraordinary adventure and unbelievable problems! Within the peach is non stop fighting between bugs and non stop problems.

Roald Dahl is great. He is good with cliffhangers and he puts a lot of dialogue which gets you really interested. I felt I never wanted to put the book down. Roald Dahl really got into the characters and showed their attitude. He added a lot of details which pulled me into the book. I have to say if you like excitement this book is for you. I recommend this book to the young boys and girls. This books genre is adventure and fantasy. I love this book. I just have to say if you never read this book you just have to. I might be exaggerating but this is the second best book I have ever read. I'd rate this book a 10.
