Review:

Picking right up where Charlie and the Chocolate Factory left off, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator continues the adventures of Charlie Bucket, his family and Willy Wonka, the eccentric candy maker. As the book begins, our heroes are shooting into the sky in a glass elevator, headed for destinations unknown. What follows is exactly the kind of high-spirited magical madness and mayhem we've all come to expect from Willy Wonka and his creator Roald Dahl. The American space race gets a send-up, as does the President, and Charlie's family gets a second chance at childhood. Throw in the Vermicious Knids, Gnoolies and Minusland and we once again witness pure genius. (Ages 9 to 12)

From the Back Cover:

“WE MUST GO HIGHER!” SAID MR WONKA. “WE MUST GO TREMENDOUSLY HIGH! HOLD ONTO YOUR STOMACH!” HE PRESSED A BROWN BUTTON. THE ELEVATOR SHUDDERED, AND THEN WITH A FEARFUL WHOOSHING NOISE IT SHOT VERTICALLY UPWARD LIKE A ROCKET.

Mr Wonka, Charlie and the entire Bucket family have blasted their way through the roof of the Chocolate factory and are whirling through space in the Great Glass Elevator. But they soon discover they are not alone – in fact the universe is swarming with strange and dangerous aliens!
