Roald Dahl’s juicy listen

Storytelling can open a world of imagination, mystery, fun and excitement. So, take some time to explore the wild adventure of James and the Giant Peach – it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and your kids’ too.

Revel in remembering just how nasty Aunts Spiker and Sponge can be – enjoy the twists and turns to see if they get their comeuppance.

The first two episodes, starring actors Meryl Streep, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nick Kroll, and brothers Chris and Liam Hemsworth, are available now on YouTube. We particularly enjoyed the homespun sound effects and giggles from the cast!

This is all in aid of Partners in Health, which makes sure people in some of the world’s poorest places get access to health care – so if you do give it a watch, chuck in a couple of quid. Every little helps.

New episodes are arriving each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6pm.

Will this mini-series of James and the Giant Peach inspire any drawings or crafty activities – or even cooking with some delicious, juicy peaches?
