I read this book for my creative writing class. We had to do an assignment where we read ten children's literature book. I was dreading the assignment, but, I found this book and I remembered it was good when I was a child. So I reread this book, it was even more enjoyable the second time. It is extremely creative and will teach your child some morals. Their is the death of parents and aunts within the book, so it might not be suitable for younger children. It would be a good book for adults to read to kids.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Typisch Dahl, 2. Oktober 2009
Ich hatte das Buch vor Jahren schon mal gelesen und genossen. nun hatte ich es wieder gekauft für die Arbeit mit Englisch-Nachhilfeschülern. Der Inhalt ist witzig, spannend und trotzdem mit Tiefgang. Der Protagonist ist ein Waisenjunge, der von den Tanten, bei denen er aufwächst, total ausgenutzt und schikaniert wird. Der riesige Pfirsich verändert seine Situation total. Es wird aber auch klar, dass seine Eigeninitiative ein wesentlicher Punkt zur Veränderung ist. Wie seine anderen Kinder/Jugendbücher kann ich dieses wärmstens empfehlen.
Da ich es schon kannte, war keine Empfehlung nötig. Für jede Empfehlung würde ich mir Infos zu Charakteren und Tiefe des Inhalts wünschen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Adventure!, 20. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: James and the Giant Peach (Taschenbuch)
Years ago, my grade four teacher read this book to our class. My mother bought me the book to read along with her. I loved this tale of a boy who traveled in a big peach! This had my imagination going right from the start. James talks to bugs..who are personified etc. If you have children, read this to them...they will never forget you for it.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: James and the Giant Peach (Taschenbuch)
Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.

To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. James and the Giant Peach was one of her picks.

The book is a wonderful witty exploration of the marvels of imagination as applied to nature. Every reader will look much more closely at the world around after finding so many interesting details to consider.

The story begins when James Henry Trotter was about four years old. He had been living happily with his parents in England. One day, they went shopping and were eaten by an angry runaway rhinoceros which had escaped from the London zoo. As a result, their wonderful home was sold and James Henry Trotter came to live with his decidedly dastardly aunts Sponge and Spiker. They mistreated and overworked James Michael Trotter much like the abuse that Cinderella experienced at the hands by her evil stepmother and stepsisters.

Poor James! He has become the most unhappy, lonely, and woebegone orphan in the world.

But his luck changes when a mysterious old man gives him some magic, in the form of wriggling little green things to put into water and drink. Then their magic will help James. "Whoever they meet first, be it bug . . . or tree, that will be . . . who gets the full power of their magic!" James is told to hold the bag tight and to hurry. But, alas, he trips and the contents of the bag spill out underneath the old barren peach tree in the yard. Quickly, the magic seeps into the ground as James scrambles to retrieve it.

Soon, the aunts spot a peach growing in the very top of the tree. And it keeps growing . . . and growing . . . and growing . . . and growing . . . until it's the size of a house. They concoct a scheme to get rich by charging admission to see the peach, while James is to stay out all night cleaning up the mess the visitors have made. Tired, he decides to look at the giant peach. He notices a hole, like a giant worm's tunnel in the bottom. He climbs in. What he finds leads him on one of the most amazing journeys that any 7 year old has ever had or imagined!

This story has a lot in common with Alice in Wonderland. Everything that happens prior to going through the hole in the peach is but a preamble for the role reversal in which the peach and the insects inside of it are made to be enormous. This is like Alice drinking the potion that makes her small. Yet the rest of the world stays its normal size. Basically, this is an encouragement to take the qualities of peaches and insects more seriously by exaggering their significance. You will learn a lot, and be charmed by how the information builds the story.

Along the way, Mr. Dahl asks some very interesting questions:

How do grasshoppers make sounds?

What benefits do earthworms, lady bugs, and spiders bring for people?

How many legs does a centipede have?

He also provides many fantastic explanations of natural processes, introducing cloud-men to make rainbows, hail, and rain. These are great fun and help develop the story.

Whenever James seeks to create a balance in and with nature, things work just fine. A good example is that he uses filament spun by the silk worm and the spider to tie to gulls who carry the peach aloft over the ocean. Harness just the right number of gulls and progress is smooth. Harness too few, and nothing happens. That subliminal message is a valuable one for every reader.

The ending is particularly fine for expanding on the concept of how each being's peculiarities can be strengths. The book appears to draw on The Ugly Duckling story for inspiration. Even James' loneliness serves him well, in the end.

I also like this story for its potential to inspire writers. Walk into your kitchen, and pick up the first item you see. Then build a story around it, like Mr. Dahl has done with this peach. If you do this with a child, you will both be the richer for the experience.

After you are done enjoying the story and writing your own, I also suggest that you think about ways that you can live in greater harmony with nature. What aspects of your life would you have to change? How could you be as useful to nature as the earthworm is to the farmer? What gratifications would you feel from doing this? Spring will be coming in a few months, and the opportunity to do some organic gardening using the materials in your own yard will be there. Plan to get closer to nature, and make notes about what you observe every day. You will enjoy great peace as a result. If you haven't read Thoreau recently, this would be a good time to do so.

Have a peachy time!

4.0 von 5 Sternen All Kids Will Love This Book, 1. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: James and the Giant Peach (Taschenbuch)
Imagine floating in an enormous peach. Your best friends are insects. Where would this lead you? I read the book James And The Giant Peach by, Roald Dahl. The book starts off when James Henry Trotter's parents are at the mall having a great time. A rhinoceros get loose at the local zoo. When the rhinoceros saw James' parents it rammed them and they were deceased. James was sent to live with his Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge. They treated him badly. They scolded him for no reason at all. One day James was sent to split some wood for the fire place in the middle of the summer. James was cutting the wood while his aunts sat on outdoor chairs scolding him. James began to cry and the aunts told him to go away from them when he cries so he went into the garden and sobbed. All of a sudden a short man with green clothes came up to james. He had a small brown paper bag. He told james to take the bag and pour its contents into a glass of water. Then drink it and you life will change. James was wondering what would change in his life. James turnedn around a looked at his aunts. He thought maybee he could get away from his aunts.

Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: James and the Giant Peach (Taschenbuch)
Ich habe das Buch gekauft, um es meinem Englischkurs (Studium) vorzustellen.

Die Kapitel sind kurz und daher für englischsprachige Kinder gut lesbar.
Die verwendeten Vokabeln sind nicht schwierig. (Die einzigen wichtigen Vokabeln,
die ich nicht kannte, waren die der Insekten. Die eingebundenen Bilder
machen es jedoch einfach die Vokabelbedeutungen zu erraten.)

Die Geschichte selbst ist sehr fantasievoll erzählt und von der Idee her gut,
allerdings finde ich einige Stellen für Kinder fragwürdig, wie z.B. die Szene in
der vor der siebenjährigen Hauptfigur "James" ein seltsamer Mann aus dem Gebüsch auftaucht
und James dem unbekannten, als skurril dargestellten Mann ohne weiteres einfach vertraut.
Derartige Szenen kommen jedoch in den meisten Büchern von
Roald Dahl vor. Wer bei sowas keine Bedenken hat und z.B. auch "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" mag,
dem wird auch dieses Buch gefallen.

Im Vergleich zu anderen Buchversionen dieser Geschichte fand ich die Bilder besonders gelungen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A classic beyond all doubt, 17. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
"James and the Giant Peach" was the first novel Ireally fell in love with as a boy. Roald Dahl's cruel beginningdidn't faze me -- it just let me know he wasn't going to pull any punches, and tell me a real story. When James' parents are trampled by a runaway rhinocerous, I shivered. And when I met the horrible Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spike, I trembled. And when they were run over by the giant peach, I cheered. Personally, I think J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter books are essentially Roald Dahl enlarged; that's probably why I love the Potter books so much. The Dursleys are just like Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, and Harry is just like poor James before he's rescued by the man with the magic worms. While I'm not particularly fond of the movie (why, oh why does Hollywood always change the plots of classic novels?), I did love the animation. Children will love this book, and all of Roald Dahl's works. If you've got a Potterhead who needs a new fix while he or she waits for the next novel, send them the original Dahl books. They'll thank you forever.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book Full of Imagination, 24. April 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: James and the Giant Peach (Taschenbuch)
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.
