Sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

When the world's greatest candymaker gave Charlie Bucket his amazing chocolate factory, Charlie's adventures were just beginning. Now he's cruising outer space with Mr. Willy Wonka in a marvelous glass elevator. The whole family is along for the ride -- Mr. and Mrs. Bucket, Grandpa Joe and Grandma Josephine, even Grandpa George and Grandma Georgina. But watch out! There are all sorts of oddities lurking in space -- strange creatures like Gnoolies and Vermicious Knids -- not to mention the President of the United States!

In this sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie Bucket teams up with the madcap chocolatier Willy Wonka once again—only now they are in outer space! Charlie has won the famous chocolate factory, and all he has to do is pick up his family in the Great Glass Elevator, but is there anyone who knows how to drive it? Great fun for everyone.

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 Inside Flap:

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.
