Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator is the superb sequel to the ever-popular Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
Charlie Bucket has WON Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and is on his way to take possession of it. In a great glass elevator! But when the elevator makes a fearful whooshing noise, Charlie and his family find themselves in splendid orbit around the Earth. A daring adventure has begun, with the one and only Mr Willy Wonka leading the way.
"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams
Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.
Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.
