I got bored of reading this. I wanted to like it. But I couldn't. I dropped the book somewhere and lost it. Darn

A criminal act no imagination Hollywood didn't film science fiction leaning book sequel that matched the original in crazy situations & eccentric characters when I read as a kid. They could have booked Gene Wilder again, but no... It was the reason I didn't bother watching Charlie & the chocolate factory 1971 & 2005 movie versions. VPL library staff could you reread the book to refresh your collective memory? It's Charlie & the Great Glass Elevator!

A lot of people-judging by the comments-seem to think that this is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

IT IS NOT.

This book is Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, and it is a little known sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. While all the Disney-fied movies are nice, nothing-and I mean NOTHING-can compare to the witty, imaginative writing of Roald Dahl's original books.

Not a lot of people seem to know about this book, as it is seldom mentioned and has not been made into a movie. It is just a wonderful-if not better than-the original and I highly recommend it if you liked the first one.

My favourite part of the story was when they got Grandma Josephine and Grandpa George back. I liked Charlie the best. The story was about a boy who travelled in a glass elevator.

I hadn't heard of this sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory until I placed holds on books by Roald Dahl at SPL. This story is fascinating! It literally picks up right where the previous book left off. And Roald Dahl proceeds to take the readers along on the adventures of Willy Wonka, Charlie, Grandpa Joe, and the rest of Charlie's family and they travel about in the Great Glass Elevator. The only reason I gave this story just 4.5 stars instead of a full 5 is because I do not feel Joseph Schindelman's illustrations are worthy of the wonderful story they are associated with. And so I have placed a new hold for this book from SPL, this time for an edition with illustrations by Quentin Blake.
