James and the Giant Peach features a young boy named James Henry Trotter. James is orphaned as a young child and is forced to live with his terrible aunts named Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. In the story, James happens upon an old wise man who gives him green jumping beans that are consumed with magic. Little does James know that these particular beans will change his life forever. On his way home from the encounter with the wise man, James spills the jumping beans onto the soil underneath a peach tree. James awakes to discover a giant peach in his backyard. It is not until later in the story that James actually travels inside the peach and discovers talking insects which include an intellectual green grasshopper, helpful ladybug, bossy centipede, grumpy earthworm, generous spider, and even a glow worm that lights up the entire giant peach. The tale is about James's journey with his new friends within the giant peach. James's travels includes sailing on the Atlantic Ocean, Cloudmen, and the excitement of New York City.
