«Dahl possiede il rarissimo dono di far scomparire tutto il mondo che sta intorno al lettore».Goffredo Fofi«Maestro della short story, a lungo considerato solo uno scrittore per ragazzi... iperbolico, beffardo, divertente, la sua massima virtù è dinamica, è la velocità. Ci si accorge di come e quanto la sua consistenza sia un meccanismo perfetto, esplosivo al pari di una bomba». Franco Cordelli, Corriere della Sera«Roald Dahl parteggia sempre per i bambini e ha creato tanti piccoli personaggi con speciali poteri che si vendicano delle prepotenze degli adulti o li puniscono per le loro cattive azioni». Donatella ZiliottoJames è torturato dalle perfide zie Spugna e Stecco, ma ecco che un vecchietto gli promette una vita meravigliosa se si berrà una caraffa con certi magici cosini verdi dentro. Cose favolose, incredibili capiteranno invece al posto suo a chiunque essi incontreranno, nel caso lui li perdesse. Così purtroppo avviene. E i cosini incontrano una Pesca, una Coccinella, un Lombrico, una Cavalletta, un Millepiedi, un Baco da Seta, una Lucciola, un Ragno, e cose meravigliose accadono, eccome, ci pensa la Pesca Gigante. Se per prima cosa spiaccicasse zia Spugna e zia Stecco? E poi, e poi...

It was so surreal and scary to me at the time that I've avoided the movie ever since. As I (finally) read the bo Leggi tutto

Book Review James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl is a very creative story built for everyone of all ages to enjoy. I think of it as a cross between 3 things: (1) Dr. Seuss, (2) Jack and the Beanstalk and (3) Harry Potter. 4 of 5 stars to this lovely keepsake! I had to read this book, wh
For a brief period in my childhood, I was obsessed with this.

What I was hoping would be a magical tale that reminded me of my childhood turned out to be an incredibly dull but also problematic book by Dahl - yet again!
