James and the Giant Peach by: Roald Dahl Illustrated by: Greta Diehl
"Up until this time, he had had a happy life, living peacefully with his mother and father in a beautiful house beside the sea." (Dahl 1).
"Then, one day, James's mother and father went to London to do some shopping, and there a terrible thing happened. Both of them suddenly got eaten up (in full daylight, mind you, and on a crowded street) by an enormous angry rhinoceros which had escaped from the London Zoo." (Dahl 1).
"Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, and I am sorry to say that they were both really horrible people. They were selfish and lazy and cruel, and right from the beginning they started beating poor James for almost no reason at all". (Dahl 1.)
"The garden, which covered the whole of the top of the hill,was large and desolate, and the only tree in the entire place(apart from a clump of dirty old laurel bushes at the far end) was an ancient peach tree that never gave any peaches." (Dahl1)
"Bigger and bigger grew the peach, bigger and bigger and bigger. Then at last, when it had become nearly as tall as the tree that it was growing on, as tall and wide, in fact, as a small house, the bottom part of it gently touched the ground -- and there it rested." ( Dahl 7)
