Our class had a wonderful time traveling across the Atlantic Ocean on a giant peach with James and his enormous insect friends. To celebrate our completion of the book, we viewed the movie during one of our half days for conferences. We compared and contrasted the novel and the film. There were so many differences!! We wished the film had included the scene with the cloud men and the part where the peach crashed through a chocolate factory. However, we still enjoyed some of the funny additions in the film. Now we have begun a new adventure...this time with a girl named Opal and her beloved dog Winn Dixie! We already can't get enough!
