    Summary

    Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge are portrayed as the villains in "James and the Giant Peach," but twenty years before they met James, they were just two young girls, abused and neglected by their mother. After the death of one of their older twin sisters, young Spiker and Sponge are horribly mistreated and forced to grow up too fast. From managing most of the housework at age eleven to running the entire family at age thirteen, and plenty of much worse things after that, Spiker's and Sponge's entire childhood was marred, leaving them with scars they'll never forget.

    Summary

    James Henry Trotter regularly tells the story about how he escaped his aunts by traveling across the ocean in a giant peach, surrounded by a collection of large and intelligent insects. And while the crowds of children might laugh, gasp, and shriek in excitement, they never seem to consider an important question. Out of all the strange and wondrous things that happened to the boy and his friends, there is one no one has ever asked about. There is one mystery that none has ever considered. Why did the unusual tale begin in the first place?

    Why did the old man give James the gift of crocodile tongues? Are there others like him, others with powerful magic? And if so, what happens when another such being sets his eyes on the unusual family? Can James and his friends survive the coming danger?

    When Vernon Centipede catches wind of the annual Disney Garden Competition, he decides he should shake things up and throw Mr. Grasshopper's garden into the race against long-time winner, Rabbit. Mr. Grasshopper has the best garden around, after all, with the redhead's skills they could steal that trophy--and the prize money--away easily. All it takes is a little convincing, and the older home owner is quick to give into the request.

    Little did they both know, they were getting way more than they bargained for.
