Reviews for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2005 Spring
This fortieth anniversary edition is a larger-format version of the 2001 edition illustrated by Quentin Blake. The trim size--closer to a picture book than a novel--and the addition of color to the illustrations make this volume more suitable as a lap-sharing read-aloud.

On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, illus. by Quentin Blake, presents the famous story interspersed with Blake's characteristically frenetic line drawings, with clusters of candy sprinkled across the pages. Pink, lavender, baby blue and yellow backgrounds of the pages make a sugary new wrapper for this favorite tale. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
