At first this cover reminded me of James and the Giant Peach...anyone remember that one? I'm sure you do! Sounds like a fun book!

James and the Giant Peach was actually the very first book I remember reading . . . long, long ago! We would love to have this book to add to our collection.

It is a classic Russian Folk tale I wonder if the gigantic turnip inspired Roald Dahl to write James and the Giant Peach.
