An eminently collectible and cherishable item.

James' life could hardly have been more horrible. He lives with his two beastly aunts in a ramshackle old house with no toys or friends to play with, and no trips or treats. Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker are really horrible people.

They make James' life a misery. Then something very peculiar and rather magical happens. The old peach tree in the garden grows one magnificent, luscious peach - almost the size of a house! One day James finds his way inside the huge travelling peach and soon he is carried away on a most amazing and unbelievable adventure...
