Reviews for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2002 Fall
BlakeÆs energetic black-and-white illustrations enliven and update DahlÆs cautionary rags-to-riches story, where impoverished, unassuming little Charlie Bucket outlasts the selfish other four candidates to win the grand prize: Willy WonkaÆs chocolate factory. The slapdash effect of the whimsical drawings matches WonkaÆs hyperactive speech and the generally frenetic narrative. Copyright 2002 Horn Book Guide Reviews
