Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

by Roald Dahl Illustrated by Quentin Blake

"A sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory finds the familiar characters orbiting through space in a magic glass elevator. It’s all good fun and suspense." — Publishers Weekly.

Mr. Willy Wonka might be a genius with chocolate, but Charlie and his family don’t trust his flying skills one bit. And right now, he’s at the helm of a giant glass elevator that’s picking up speed and hurtling through space — with Charlie and the entire Bucket family stuck inside! Roald Dahl’s uproarious sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is certain to delight and entertain a new generation of readers.
