'James and the Giant Peach' is one of the most famous books written by Roald Dahl and shortly after the book came the movie which became just as famous as the book version.

The movie 'James and the giant Peach' revolves around the story of a young boy named James Henry Trotter whose parents have died and he is forced to live with his two cruel aunts who treat him with the utmost disregard. James is tired of living his life with his aunts and wishes that he could go to the Empire State Building in New York 'Where dreams come true'. James is just spending another day of his miserable life with his aunts when he finds a peach growing on anearby tree which hadn't grown a fruit for years and the peach keeps growing until it grows to the size of his Aunt's house. James finds a hole in the peach and climbs into it and that is when his journey to New York begins along with the giant insects in the peach.

'James and the giant peach' is a very interesting, fun as well as funny movie. The characters give this story light and dark moments. Mr. Centipede's funny remarks and comments and the rest of the insects lighten up the movie with their comedy and sincerity for each other and James. They all manage to make it to New York but in order to find out what lies ahead of them, you must watch the movie yourself.

Though this movie would not be suitable for the older generation, I would recommend this movie to the young and enthusiastic generations of today.

An interesting book which I recently read is called 'The Diary of a Young Girl,' written by Anne Frank.

This book is a real story about Anne's birth till her death. She and her family moved from Germany to the Netherlands because of Hitler but he got into the Netherlands too. There was a great war against Jews and as the Franks were also Jews, they went into hiding.

However, they were quite unlucky and were found by the Nazis. Anne's father Otto was sent to another camp, her mother to another and she was sent to another with her sister, Margot. After some time Margot got sick with some disease. Anne also got that. When they were in hospital Margot fell off the bed and died. After some days Anne also died thinking that both her parents were dead and she was alone.
