Characters[ edit ] James Henry Trotter — The seven-year-old protagonist of the book, who wants nothing more than to have friends and be happy. Though something of a dreamer, James is clever, kind-hearted, innocent, and ever-resourceful throughout his adventure in the giant peach, and his intuitive plans save his friends' lives on each occasion.
The Old Man — A friendly yet mysterious individual, who initiates James' adventure. In the re-printing of the book, with illustrations by Nancy Ekholm Burkert, he can be seen in the final illustration, amongst the New York City crowd. Aunt Spiker — A dominating, cruel, malicious, and thoroughly repulsive woman; possibly the older of James' aunts. Spiker is described as tall and thin — almost emaciated — with steel glasses, and her speech produces spit whenever she gets angry or excited.
James never hears her or her sister Sponge laugh, and they never call him by his name, but always refer to him as insults such as "you nasty little beast" or "you miserable creature".
She seems to be the smarter of the aunts. She is destroyed by the giant peach in its escape. It is unknown if she and her sister Sponge are the sisters of James's mother or father, or since the illustrations depict them as elderly his great-aunts.
Aunt Sponge — Spiker's sister: a greedy, selfish, and morbidly obese woman, and equally as cruel and repulsive as Spiker, but seems to be less smart, she had flabby eyes, she was very fat and very short.
The Centipede — A male centipede , depicted as a boisterous rascal with a good heart, and perhaps James' closest friend in the peach. He is generally optimistic and even brave, but outspoken and rash.
His sources of pride are his " legs", even though he has only 42, and his ancestral status of garden pest. He often asks for help with putting on his many boots, or taking them off, or shining them.
In the last chapter of the book, it is revealed that he becomes Vice-President-in-Charge-of-Sales of a high-class firm of boot and shoe manufacturers. The Earthworm — A male earthworm who often quarrels with the Centipede, and is frequently the most pessimistic of the protagonists, though on amicable terms with nearly all.
In New York City, he becomes the mascot of a skin-cream company.
The Old Green Grasshopper — A male grasshopper , who as the eldest assumes an almost paternal role to James and the others. He is an accomplished musician; wherefore, he ultimately becomes a member of the New York Symphony Orchestra where his playing is greatly admired. The Ladybird — A kind, motherly female ladybird who takes care of James.
In the last chapter of the book, it is revealed that the Ladybird "married the head of the New York City Fire Department and lived happily ever after".
Miss Spider — A good-natured female spider who takes care of James. Friendly and decent in manner, but described by Dahl as having "a large, black and murderous-looking head, which to a stranger was probably the most terrifying of all". She has particular resentment towards Sponge and Spiker because they killed her father and grandmother. On the journey, Miss Spider makes hammocks for the others to sleep; and in the final chapter, becomes a tightrope manufacturer along with the Silkworm.

The Glowworm — A female glowworm , who quietly hangs from the ceiling at the center of the giant peach and provides lighting for the interior. After the adventure, she illuminates the Statue of Liberty 's torch.
