James and the Giant Peach by Raold Dahl

One of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors.
I read this with my class every year towards the end.  When we write our letters to the upcoming fourth graders to tell them our "favorites" of the year, this book is often included in many students' letters.

So, when I came across the comprehension guide written by the Wise Guys on TPT, I had to download it. 

Get your own for FREE at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/James-and-the-Giant-Peach-Reading-Comprehension-Guide-KEY-33-pgs.  I will use it for literature circles after we've read it as a class.

Not to be forgotten, the movie.  This is one of the few movies we watch to go along with books we've read.  It's more of a "we made it through the year and we deserve a break" kind of things.  I find that the movie sticks fairly closely to the book, so I can justify it.
