Introducing the amazing Willy Wonka, chocolate-maker extraordinary! Now in one volume are the complete works of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, two Willy Wonka classics from beloved author Roald Dahl.

In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka's famous, mysterious chocolate factory is opening its doors at last. But only five lucky children will be allowed inside: Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, Mike Teavee—and Charlie Bucket, Our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life. But even Charlie never expects to fly through the chocolate factory in a giant glass elevator! In the uproarious sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Willy Wonka whisks Charlie and the entire Bucket family right into space on an intergalactic elevator joyride—and another wild fantasy adventure.

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 many books—James and the Giant Peach, Danny the Champion of the World, and The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar (and Six More), to name just a few—continues to grow.

Quentin Blake has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books as well as many others. The first Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, Quentin Blake lives in London and teaches illustration at the Royal College of Art.
