James and the Giant Peach
James Henry Trotter is a four-year-old boy who lives with his parents in a house by the sea. When James' parents are killed by a rhinoceros, the orphaned James is forced to live with his two abusive aunts, Spiker and Sponge. They treat him badly, feed him improperly and force him to sleep on bare floorboards.
One day, after an argument with his aunts, James meets a mysterious man who gives him green beans and says that if he would drink it his life would be full of adventures. While going to his home he falls and the beans spill on a peach tree which produces a single peach and it grows to the size of a house. Spiker and Sponge build fences around it and earn money by selling tickets to tourists and they get to see the peach. But James is locked in his house and sees the peach through the bars of the window.
James is assigned to clean the trash and finds a tunnel in the peach and goes through it and meets Centipede, Miss Spider, Old Green Grasshopper, Earthworm, and Ladybug who become his friends. Together they help James escape his miserable aunts and they go on a magical journey together in the peach!
