Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

Read by David Dunhill

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

Read by the author.

The RNIB Talking Book studios have had many famous authors drop in to record their work, and one such visitor in the 1980s was Roald Dahl. He recorded his first children's book, James and the Giant Peach, and as you'll hear at the start of episode 1, told us what brought him to write it.

When James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree, strange things start to happen. The peach at the top of the tree begins to grow, and before long it's as big as a house.

When James discovers a secret entranceway into the fruit and crawls inside, he meets wonderful new friends--the Old-Green-Grasshopper, the dainty Ladybug, and the Centipede of the multiple boots. After years of feeling like an outsider in his aunts' house, James finally found a place where he belongs.
