A beloved middle-grade/young adult book

James and the Giant Peach
Roald Dahl
"I was always a HUGE fan of all things Roald Dahl."
"These worlds he created had the nonsensical appeal of Dr. Seuss, while at the same time, the characters were all written with wonderful complexities and enormous heart."
