A magical, musical fairy tale concerning a little boy, James Henry Trotter, who finds himself living with his two aunts, Spiker and Sponge, after the death of his parents. Life with his aunts is hard and he dreams of a better place, specifically New York City, a "dream like" place his parents had talked about.

His dream comes true when a stranger appears with a bagful of magic which among others things, changes insects (a Grasshopper, Centipede, Lady Bug, Spider, Earthworm, and Glow Worm) into real life characters and causes an ordinary peach to grow to immense proportions. It's upon this peach that James and his new insect friends travel and make their way toward his "dream land."
