Publisher's 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.

Fantastic! - But listen to it through headphones!

This is one of my favourite Roald Dahl books that I enjoyed as a child in the 80s and enjoyed this just as much. Some of the reviews complain about the sound quality but they obviously ignored the first part of the book when it is explained that it is a binaural recording so must be listened to through headphones; you then get an amazing 3D stereo sound sensation. It sometimes sounds like the sound is moving around outside your head. Its a great book for all ages!

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.

Not amusing if you are not a child.

I have been curious to listen to a Roald Dahl book - and chose this one because it was offered cheap.

Being 40 year outside by childhood, I had expected at least to find the story amusing, but did not. Thus I am unlikely to choose the BFG or Chocolate Factory is they too are offered cheap.
