Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.

Now in splendiferous binaural!

Listen with headphones for a wondercrump audio experience that sounds like Roald Dahl's phizz-whizzing characters are in the room with you!

James Henry Trotter's parents have been eaten by a rhinoceros, so now he lives with his two repulsive aunts.

One hot day something peculiar happens and an enormous peach grows in their garden. Soon James and the Giant Peach are rolling away from his horrible aunts, towards a most marvellous and wonderful place....

Listen to James and the Giant Peach and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Stephen Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Look out for Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play - including the disgusting Twit or Miss! - inspired by the revolting Twits.

Roald Dahl at his best!

Just been reliving my childhood with this classic. Still as entertaining as it ever was.

Classic story, good narration, poor audio

Good: The story - the kids liked it and laughed at many points. The narration was also good.

Poor: The audio mixing. At many points, the volume drops too low for listening in the car.
