One day, James meets a strange old man who gives him a bag full of magical crystals and James’ life takes a most extraordinary turn. For when the magical crystals encounter a withered old peach tree, it starts to grow an enormous peach, bigger than anyone has ever seen, as big as a house, big enough to roll away all by itself and most certainly big enough for a small boy to crawl inside. Which is exactly what James decides to do.
