Publisher Comments:

A stunning deluxe edition of Roald Dahls beloved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, featuring

—a new introduction by Lev Grossman, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Magicians

—cover art by the award-winning cartoonist Ivan Brunetti

—the original interior art from the 1964 first edition

Twice turned into a feature film, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a delectable classic about a child's dreams and the eccentric chocolate-maker who makes them come true. When Willy Wonka's hallowed chocolate factory holds a worldwide contest awarding tours to the lucky, five children emerge as winners, including a glutton, a gum- chewing nitwit, a spoiled brat, and a TV addict. Only Charlie Bucket, the story's earnest hero, stands to win the exotic riches of Wonka's empire-if he avoids the pitfalls of his fellow contestants and stays true to his heart. Ingenious and entertaining, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a true modern classic.

Synopsis:

Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last But only five lucky children will be allowed inside. And the winners are: 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

A great story about a boy who comes from a poor family, but he wins a golden ticket to the chocolate factory. This book shows that dreams can come true, and it has candy, so what's not to love?!
