Charlie and the Chocolate Factoryby Roald Dahl
Synopses & Reviews
Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last! But only five lucky children will be allowed inside - including our hero, Charlie Bucket. With his golden ticket in hand, Charlie is ready for the wildest time of his life!
Amazing pop-up visuals, lift-the-flaps, pull tabs, and more bring Roald Dahl's timeless classic to life in a scrumdiddlyumptious new way that's sure to amaze kids of all ages!
"An abbreviated version of Dahl's classic story takes to the pop-up stage, accompanied by Blake's scraggly pen-and-ink caricatures. Gatefolds, mini-booklets, and pop-ups reveal the major plot points of the story ('Two Golden Tickets Found Today!' shouts a headline on a foldout newspaper), with a towering glass elevator on the final spread. Smart use of interactive elements — many of which focus on the grim fates of Charlie's fellow ticketÂholders — makes Wonka's already magical world feel even more so. Ages 7 — up."
