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.

Meet the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant PeachMatildaThe BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.
