Illustrated by Burkert, Nancy Ekholm

Slight edge wear, small stain on bottom edge. An attractive copy.

Another wonderful tale by the incomparable Roald Dahl. "‘Marvelous things will start happening to you. . . and you will never again be miserable in your whole life.’ Whereupon the little man gave James some magic green things and scurried away. But James, who hated his wicked aunts, Sponge and Spiker, spilled the green things under the old peach tree. Sadly, he resigned himself to misery when suddenly a huge peach appeared on top of the tree! Soon it was as big as a small house. Crawling inside, James met wonderful new friends: cheerful Grasshopper, dainty Ladybug, and grumpy Centipede, whose razor-sharp jaws severed the thick peach stem. . . And away the peach household rolled, embarked on a series of madcap adventures." Black and white illustrations enhanced with color by Nancy Ekholm Burkert.

Luckily for Sophie, the BFG is far more jumbly than his disgusting neighbours, whose favourite pastime is guzzling and swallomping nice little children.

Illustrated by Blake, Quentin

Like new.

"Who needs a ladder when you've got a giraffe with an extending neck? The Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company certainly doesn't. They don't need a pail, either, because they have a pelican with a bucket-sized beak. With a monkey to do the washing and Billy as their manager, this business is destined for success. Now they have their big break -- a chance to clean all 677 windows of Hampshire House, owned by the richest man in all of England! That's exciting enough, but along the way there are surprised and adventures beyond their wildest window-washing dreams. "
