You Can't Read That!Roald Dahl knew how to capture the imaginations of children, and he always respected them as readers. In painting with broad strokes, Dahl makes life feel true to kids, who have little control over their days. Add to Bag. When a boy is caught stealing cake, the Trunchbull makes him eat an entire cake in front of his assembled classmates. You have to stand.
Banned Books: Publications by Roald Dahl
No wonder a generation of crybabies is being raised. Welcome back. In re: to James and the giant peach I laughed.
It still boggles my mind that books would be banned in the first place, my Mum disapproved of the Pippi books because of her disrespectful ways. Horrible, especially in a country like the US where we have free speech! Well, I know. Dahl was my favorite author when I was a kid and I've read this book many times.
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl tells the story of four-year-old James, who lives with his loving parents in a cottage in the south of England. Around the house James is treated as a worker and beaten for hardly any reason, improperly fed, and forced to sleep on bare floorboards in the attic.

James and the Giant Peach
When James accidentally drops the magical crystals beneath an old peach tree in his yard, the first peach in decades begins to grow, only stopping when it is the size of a house. Inside, James meets a variety of new, over-sized insect friends. With a snip of the peach stem, James and his friends roll away from his lonely life and towards adventure. I also liked the different personalities of each of the insects, as well as the creativity and imagination that Dahl infused into the story. Overall, I think that kids will love the fantastical elements and sense of adventure, and that most of the semi-inappropriate character comments see below will go over their heads.
