Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, illus. by Quentin Blake, presents the famous story interspersed with Blake's characteristically frenetic line drawings, with clusters of candy sprinkled across the pages. Pink, lavender, baby blue and yellow backgrounds of the pages make a sugary new wrapper for this favorite tale. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Sue Reichard
The children have waited eagerly for the gates of Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory to open. The problem is only five children will be let inside. This is a dream come true for Charlie Bucket when he finds his winning ticket in a candy bar he buys, especially since Charlie's family is very poor and he can only have one candy bar per year. It is an amusing tale that has been entertaining kids for more than three decades. 1998 (orig.
Children's Literature
This 40th anniversary edition of a beloved classic has been given a fresh, crisp look. Quentin Blake's characteristic drawings, in vibrant full color, are bursting with energy and enliven the madcap text with their exaggerated features and humorous dimension. The assorted candy-colored pages and the sweet treats sprinkled across many of the pages are a pleasant addition to this already delicious story. This edition is complete and unabridged. Children will eagerly embrace the magic and mayhem within and delight in getting reacquainted with the Oompa Loompas, Violet Beauregarde, Gandpa Joe and especially Willy Wonka and all the other memorable characters they have come to know and love. The perennial favorite that tells the story of young Charlie's good fortune when he wins a magical tour of Willy Wonka's extraordinary chocolate factory has been given a handsome new design and is ready to entertain old friends and a whole new generation of readers. 2004 (orig. 1964), Knopf, Ages 6 to 12.
