"'Something is about to happen,' he told himself. 'Something peculiar is about to happen at any moment.' He hadn't the faintest idea what it might be, but he could feel it in his bones that something was going to happen soon. He could feel it in the air around him ... in the sudden stillness that had fallen upon the garden."
-Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach
Now, on to lunch. I went simple.. really simple.. for this lunch, and yes, you'll notice that I leaned on the movie version since the audience (my kid) is not familiar with the book yet (hey, she's 4). In the book, New York was where the group ended up, but wasn't really where James dreamed of going all along like in the movie. Still, the dream of 'escaping' and the idea that everything begins with something you dream possible, both very much existed in the book. Hey, the kiddo 'got' it and loved it, so score!
