Where did we leave little Charlie Bucket and his family? Ah yes, that’s right, when we last saw them they were flying high above the city in Mr Wonka’s flying glass elevator.
Now as you will no doubt know by now, no trip with Mr Willy Wonka is ever ordinary and for the Bucket family, heading off into space, this is no exception. Buckle your seatbelts, hold your horses, hold on to something, anyway; this is going to be a very bumpy ride!
Waterstones gives you a one way ticket for the Great Glass Elevator. Join Charlie as he travels to the brand new American Space Hotel, meets the murderous, bloodthirsty Vermicious Knids (an alien race who just happen to be rather keen on the word ‘scram’) and finds out what happens if you take too much Wonka-Vite.
You’d be cracked as a crab to miss it!
Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favourite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy.
Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s number one storyteller.
One of Britain’s finest living illustrators, Quentin Blake has put pictures to more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. As an author he has written and illustrated a number of bestselling children’s books including The Green Ship and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
