This is a new edition of this hugely popular story of James and his journey to New York with the strangest group of insect friends. It features a great new Quentin Blake cover and new author biography.

I haven't read the new edition having read this book when I was about 10 so I don't know if it is any different but I absolutely love this Dahl book and have seen the movie too. My daughter read the book a few years ago and when she was talking to me about parts of the book it brought back all the memories it really is such a great children's book but has morals that even adults can appreciate.

As with other Dahl books James is in some way an abused boy being made to work long hours and being locked in the basement sleeping on a hard floor by his evil aunts who he is sent to live with when his parents die. He is not aloud to play with other children and is sometimes even denied food. The story has a good ending though with James "the little guy" beating the odds and getting away from the situation and his evil aunts leaving them flattened by the giant peach he grows.

With a group of insects he befriends inside the magic giant peach he goes on a huge adventure before eventually ending up in New York City where James and all the insects are accepted by the city and given jobs of high importance such as the light in the torch of the statue of liberty and James lives in his giant peach house.

Product reviews for listing 7796: Kiwi Corkers: The Whale and Snapper -  Author: Jo Van Dam

Product image for Kiwi Corkers: The Whale and SnapperThe snapper swam towards the whale, and in his ear she spoke, "Kia ora mate, remember me? You thought I was a joke. I may be small and you are huge, but I'll help you in your plight. I have the strongest, sharpest teeth, and through this mesh I'll bite."

Kindness and courage flows two ways in this sweet-as, under-the-sea Kiwi adaptation of the traditional tale, The Lion and the Mouse. A welcome addition to the Kiwi Corkers series.
