Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE STORYTELLER. Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
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.)
