Staff Reviews


This is my favorite Roald Dahl book. For one, what child’s dream isn’t to be in a candy factory like that? Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is sweet and heartwarming, dark and funny. I tear up every time I read the part where Charlie finds the golden ticket. To me, this is pure literary magic.

— Flannery

Description


Fifty years ago, Roald Dahl created a world that captured the imagination of millions of readers, and a boy who captured their hearts. Now featuring an introduction by award-winning author Jon Scieszka, this special edition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is perfect for longtime Roald Dahl fans, or for any reader discovering him for the very first time.

About the Author


Roald Dahl was, quite simply, one of the best-loved children's book authors of all time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity and that of his books--Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, James and the Giant Peach, and Danny the Champion of the World, to name just a few--continues to grow. Quentin Blake has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books. The Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, he teaches illustration at the Royal College of Art in London.
