Roald Dahl himself reads this classic favourite from the grand master of storytelling. * The audio titles read by Roald Dahl himself have been solid backlist titles for over a decade now. Of historical archive interest, as well as being modern classics in their own right, this new edition should provide a real audio backlist boost. * Roald Dahl and Collins brand strengthened via vibrant new fun look. * Narrated by Roald Dahl, who tells his own stories in his own inimitable way. * Abridged.
An abbreviated version of Dahl's classic story takes to the pop-up stage, accompanied by Blake's scraggly pen-and-ink caricatures. Gatefolds, mini-booklets, and pop-ups reveal the major plot points of the story ("Two Golden Tickets Found Today!" shouts a headline on a foldout newspaper), with a towering glass elevator on the final spread. Smart use of interactive elements-many of which focus on the grim fates of Charlie's fellow ticket-holders-makes Wonka's already magical world feel even more so. Ages 7-up. (Oct.)
