Until one day an old man gave him a peach seed. He put the seed in the ground. The seed grows over night growing into a large peach tree. Inside the giant peach is a centipede, a grasshopper, a spider, a ladybug, glowworm and a silkworm. Then the peach rolls through the town and then falling off a cliff and into the ocean.
