For some hands-on creative fun! Find out about the story of James and the Giant Peach, and about some of the fascinating characters in the book. You'll learn how Roald Dahl created James's insect friends, before putting your creative hat on!

Inspired by what you've discovered you'll have a go at painting a portrait of one of the insects using some great techniques that we'll show you, then you'll create a fantastic frame to go with it.
