Synopsis:

 

Orphaned James Henry Trotter, a four year old boy is sent to live with his two horrible and cruel maiden aunts, Spiker and Sponge. Two years later James meets a strange man in the garden who gives him a bag of magic crystals, but while running back to the house, James trips, dropping it and the contents vanish into the ground. Later a long-barren peach tree in the garden puts forth a single fruit which grows to almost twice the size of the tree and that night, James finds a hole in it and crawls inside the giant peach, where he finds a most bizarre group of friends – all giant creepy-crawlies: the Centipede, Miss Spider, the Old-Green-Grasshopper, the Silkworm, the Earthworm, Mrs. Ladybug and the Glowworm.

 

The adventure starts as the Peach breaks off from the tree and rolls down the hill and tumbles into the Atlantic Ocean....
