Complete and unabridged, this is a very special recording of this hugely popular Dahl tale, handsomely read by Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons.
'Something is about to happen, James told himself.' James has lived with his two beastly aunts ever since the day his parents were eaten by an angry escaped rhinocerous outside London Zoo. Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker are really horrible . . . Then something very peculiar happens, something magical that will completely change James's life and take him on the most amazing journey . . .
