Editorial Reviews

Independent Press Telegraph
A delightfuly marvelous story bound to enchant all Willy Wonka fans.
Children's Literature - Cheryl Peterson
This sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continues the adventure as Charlie, Willy Wonka, and the gang are last seen flying through the sky in a giant elevator. They encounter a U. S. Space Hotel, receive an invitation to the White House, and save the world by battling Vermicious Knids before their descent back to the chocolate factory. Once on the ground, they experiment with Wonka-Vite (a pill that takes years off), and figure out a way to get the old folks out of bed. This reprint is lots of fun to read, and is enhanced by Quentin Blake's comical illustrations.
